The Alhambra is the red fortress palace-city that dominates Granada. It comprises three parts: Nazrid Palaces, Alcazaba and Generalife. It is the most visited monument in Spain.
The Alhambra is considered by some to be one of the 7 wonders of the world.
In case you don't know, the Alhambra is a massive castle constructed over many centuries. It consists of gardens, fortifications and sumptuous palaces.
It was the home of many of the Arabic Sultans who ruled the whole province so I suppose for centuries it received the optimum in interior decoration and architecture.
If you read the Koran it continually repeats the idea that heaven is a garden with running water. From this perspective you could say that the Alhambra is an Arabic attempt to create heaven on earth.
Nowadays it receives 8000 visitors per day and is Spain's most visited monument. Even the biggest philistine would be impressed.
