The Alhambra, declared a World Heritage Site in 1984, is a palatine city located on the Sabika hill, next to the Darro River. Its name comes from the color of the walls (Al-Hamra in Arabic), constructed with the clay from the ground, hence its reddish color.
The complex consists of the gardens of the Generalife, the Nasrid Palaces and the Alcazaba, built in Arabic. Of Christian influence, we find the palace of Carlos V and the church of Santa Maria, built on the old mosque.
The Alhambra is divided into three parts: the Alcazaba, the Nasrid Palaces and the Generalife Gardens. Your guide will explain what you see and what makes this place so majestic.
