The Alhambra, the complete form of which was Calat Alhambra, and the Generalife were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. It ia a palace and fortress complex in Muslim Architecture.
The places open for public visits are divided into four areas: Alcazaba, Nasrid Palaces, Partal and Generalife. Alhambra, Granada, Spain.
HERE is: The portico, with its five arches, overlooks a large pool in the centre of the garden.
Behind the portico is the main room, located inside the tower known as Las Damas.
WELL WORTH A VISIT!!! Order your tickets before hand or you might not get in! It is extremely popular.
The access to the beautiful and exotic Nasrid Palaces is different from the rest of the monument, because it is strictly limited to the half- hour indicated on the ticket due the restrictions on maximum capacity in this area (300 people). This is inside, Patio de los Arrayanes (Court of the Myrtles) and is also called the Patio de la Alberca (from Arabic "Birka" meaning pool).
Photographing is difficult because of the crowds... But, if, like me, one of your virtues is 'patience' (NOT!)... people move on with their guides and staying behind a little could pay off, like it did for me. Don't be fooled by the emptiness! LOL.
With love to you and thank you for ALL your faves and comments, M, (* _ *)
