Today we visited the famous site of the Alhambra. The Alhambra was built as a military fortress and has existed since the 9th century. However, in 1238 the Nasrites arrived and began to restore the fortress of the Alhambra to what it now is today. The construction of the Alhambra continued into the 14th century. Then in 1492, the Alhambra became controlled by Christians due to the arrival of Isabel and Ferdinand in Granada. We were lucky enough to spend time exploring this amazing site. The details of the palace were amazing. The beauty of it all was incredible and to imagine it has been preserved for such a long time is amazing. The views were breathtaking. Visiting the Alhambra was a once in a lifetime experience that we are all very grateful for having experienced.
