The Alhambra

Harking back to the days when present-day Spain was a Muslim land, the Alhambra is a 700-year-old palace complex built by the Moors near Granada, in what is now the Andalusia region. Its name translates to "red fortress," reflecting the color of the clay used for much of its construction. The Alhambra's Islamic architecture and artwork are breathtaking, as are its outdoor features, including gardens and fountains.
