Enjoying the sights from your holiday apartment in Alhambra
The Alhambra is a vast palace complex overlooking the city of Granada. It consists of six palaces and two tower buildings and has been brilliantly restored after falling into disrepair in the 19th century. Its origins go back to 889 AD when it started life as a Moorish fort. In the 14th century it was expanded into a royal palace for the Sultan of Granada, Yusuf I. Since then it has been reconquered by Christian Europe and the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles V, build his own palace there in 1527. Today the Alhambra’s fountains are still fed by water channelled all the way from the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The renovated complex is also now one of the most visited attractions in Spain.
