Visiting Alhambra

Posting several pictures of one of my favourite monuments on Earth. If I could visit this magnificent palace, I wouldn't mind sleeping forever...

"The Sabikah is Granada's crown, and the Alhambra is the ruby at the top of the crown."
-Ibn Zamrak

Some background on this austere fortress. It is situated in the province of Granada, in Andalusia, which is in Spain. Standing out prominently against the grand background of Sierra Nevadas, this monument has a rich legend dating back to the time of the Moors' final defeat. What we see now is one of the many vestiges left behind by the different conquerors in history, namely the Arabs and the Christians.

Alright, that's all I have right now, will talk about some of the music inspired by this grand monument and Spain some other time.
