The Alhambra: A pearl set in emeralds
Described by poets as a pearl set in emeralds, the Alhambra reflects Islamic traditions and narrates the history of Spain before and after the Moorish occupation. Inhabited in the ninth century by Sawwar ben Hamdun, the Alhambra first served as a military fortress. In 1230, Ibn-Al Ahmar (Mohamed ben Al-Hamar) established the Nasrid reign during which the Alhambra came to its apogee. After the conquest of Granada by Christians in 1492, the palace lost its mythic glory but regained it during the 19th century thanks to European travelers and writers. In 1870, the Alhambra was declared a monument. Today, it is one of the most visited historical sites in the world. Welcome to the Alhambra Palace and discover the splendor of Moorish traditio
