the former Sultan's Residence in Andalusia
Navigation: mouseover
It is hard to believe, but from 711 until 1492 the city of Granada was part of the emirate Al-Andalus in the south of Spain. During these almost 800 years twenty three different sultans resided at the Alhambra and made it one of the finest examples of a royal Arab residence in the Middle Ages. The fortress and palace complex as well as the summer residence Generalife are situated on Sabikah-hill and offers picturesque views of the country side.
