The Alhambra – Grenada, Spain

The Alhambra

The Moors built this beautiful, hill top complex of palaces, gardens and fortress in the 14th century in Granada.  As you may know, they invaded and subdued Visigothic Spain from their stronghold in Morocco in the 5th century.  They remained in power until kicked out ten centuries later by Ferdinand and Isabella in 1492.

I snapped this photo while traveling through Spain in November 2004.
