Alhambra Reflection
photo by Copeau

Literary meaning "the red one', The Alhambra was constructed in the 14th century, by the Moorish rulers of the Emirate of Granada. It had many phases of construction, started as a military area, only to become a residence for the royalty later. It didn't have an initial plan, so the construction is not organized, and many of the buildings were added later in time.

It's beauty and architecture made it one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
