The Alhambra from Plaza de Carvajales

Text by Lara Eve Eggleton May 2011

The Alhambra, from the Arabic Qal'at al-Hamra, 'the red fort', is a medieval Islamic palatine city located in Granada, Spain, of which large portions remain intact and have been significantly transformed over the centuries. Its grounds encompass almost three and a half million square metres along a rocky outcrop of the Sierra Nevada called the Sabika Hill, and include a number of palatial buildings, fortress structures and towers, gardens and archeological sites, as well as a medieval network of aqueducts and water canals that supplied the compound in medieval times and still partially functions today .
