Alhambra, Around the Citadel

A photographic story of my visit to the beautiful citadel, La Alhambra. All it’s passages, gardens and corners.

This is the photographical documentation of my visit to the Alhambra.


The Alhambra, the complete Arabic form of which was Calat Alhamra, is a palace and fortress complex, located in Granada, Andalusia, Spain. It was originally constructed as a small fortress in AD 889, on the remains of Roman fortifications, and then largely ignored, until its ruins were renovated and rebuilt in the mid-13th century, by a Moorish emir: Mohammed ben Al-Ahmar of the Emirate of Granada, who built its current palace and walls. In 1333, it was converted into a royal palace, by Yusuf I, Sultan of Granada.
