Alhambra

Alhambra (Arabies: قصر الحمراء - qasr alhamrā' – Rooi Paleis) is 'n middeleeuse paleis en fort in Spanje. Die paleis is tussen 1238 en 1358 vir Moorse konings van die Granada-koninkryk in Andalusië (Suid-Spanje) gebou. Dit is op 'n heuwelagtige plato aan die suidoostelike grens van die stad Grenada geleë. Die paleis word as die land se indrukwekkendste gebou in die Moorse styl beskou. Die Alhambra is in 1984 (saam met die Palacio de Generalife en die Albayzín) deur UNESCO as wêrelderfenisgebied gelys.

Die uitgebreide kompleks is (na die verowering van die koninkryk van Granada in 1492) deur die katolieke koningspaar as 'n belangrike buit beskou. Hul kleinseun, keiser Karel V, gee in 1526 na sy besoek aan Granada opdrag om 'n renaissancistiese paleis in die Alhambra te bou, waarvoor 'n deel van die Alhambra afgebreek is. Sy vrou het egter gesorg dat die res bewaar bly.

Die paleis is veral gewild onder Europese kunsstudente. Baie van die kunswerke is gerestoureer en dien as 'n goeie voorbeeld van Moorse kuns op die Europese vasteland. Toeriste moet daarop let dat slegs 'n beperkte aantal besoekers per dag toelaat word. Persone wat daar opdaag sonder om vooraf te bespreek, loop die gevaar om nie toegelaat te word nie.

Die Parador van Granada (vroeëre klooster van Sint Franciscus waar die katolieke koningin oorspronklik begrawe is) en die Palacio de Generalife kan in die tuine van Alhambra gevind word.

One of the most well-reserved pieces of religious architecture in western Europe provides you with a stunning glimpse of the ancient Moorish culture. Take a couple of hours to stroll around.

There are two ques for the entrance ticket . Go for the one on the right with machine as it's a lot faster. Nice place worth the wait. Some sun screen is recommended during summer. Can get hot !

we went there in winters, there are two queues, one for cash and the other one for credit cards. Credit card one moves quickly, don't bother with the cash one. There is wifi, whole visit is 4 hrs...

Do not miss the Nazari palaces. The map you get for the visit is good, use it. And book tickets online ahead of your visit, the system for tickets is tricky.

A must visit when in Granada. Plan half a day so you have time to discover all beautiful places inside this wonderful piece of art. The gardens of the Generalife are worth a detour! Book on time.

The jewel of Spain! So much poetry in the Moorish architecture. The roman palace built after the reconquest are a butchery of the delicate moorish architecture. But good to see this stark contrasts.
