the courtyards of Alhambra

The Calat Alhambra, the grand palace that served as fortress and court of the Nasrid Dynasty, the last Muslim rulers in Europe. Described as 'a pearl set in emeralds', it was used by Christian rulers after the Reconquista. Overlooking the city of Granada, set against the Sierra Nevada mountains, Alhambra is a stunning sight. Majestic yet filled with the most amazingly intricate architectural details ... the photos simply don't do it justice.
