The Alhambra (Granada, Spain)

9.27.2012- The Alhambra is breathtaking. The Muslim influence is prevalent in every corner from the ornately detailed patterns on the walls throughout the Palacio Nazaries to the bubbling fountains in the beautiful Generalife garden. It’s no wonder the Catholics fought so hard to overtake it. It is also situated high up in the perfect defensive position, a strategic fortress for whoever was lucky enough to rule it. The view of it from the San Nicolas viewpoint (depicted here) is unquestionably awesome.
