A wonderful trip to Alhambra, Granada
Located jn Granada, Spain, Alhambra is a palace and fortress complex. It has always been our dream destination as it is one of the most famous palaces of the historic Islamic world.
We flew in to Malaga and took a 2-hour bus to Granada for a day trip.
Granada is smaller but more touristy than Malaga so the price of accommodation is slightly more expensive.
However, if you want to spend a few days exploring Granada, it will be better to stay here.
Do check out the official website of The Alhambra before visiting so you can be sure of the opening hours. It is also important to make up your mind of what do you want to visit, as there are different prices for different places (fortress or place or garden). The combo tickets are reasonable if you have plenty of time in hands. #bucketlistreboot #passionpassport
The Beauty of Alhambra!
The Alhambra is a palace and fortress complex located in Granada, Andalusia, Spain. It is one of the most famous monuments of Islamic architecture and one of the best-preserved palaces of the historic Islamic world, in addition to containing notable examples of Spanish Renaissance architecture.
It reflects the tradition of Moorish architecture developed over previous centuries. It is characterized by the use of the courtyard as a central space and basic unit around which other halls and rooms were organized. Courtyards typically had water features at their center, such as a reflective pool or a fountain.
Decoration was focused on the inside of the building and was executed primarily with tile mosaics on lower walls and carved stucco on the upper walls. Geometric patterns, vegetal motifs, and Arabic inscriptions were the main types of decorative motifs. Additionally, "stalactite"-like sculpting, known as muqarnas, was used for three-dimensional features like vaulted ceilings

Spain, a country full of romance.
Spain is located on the southwestern Iberian Peninsula in Europe, facing Africa across the Strait of Gibraltar to the south and the Mediterranean Sea to the east. Follow my footsteps and let's go.
Seville is a city with a rich historical heritage, which embodies the passion, freedom, charm and various styles of Spain. Let's take a closer look at this charming city of Seville. The Seville Cathedral is the most famous building in Seville and one of the "Three Great Cathedrals of the World" along with St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican and St. Paul's Cathedral in London. The site of the cathedral was originally a mosque, which was demolished by Christian rulers in the late 14th century and took about a hundred years to rebuild this grand cathedral. It was listed as a World Heritage Site in 1987, and the remains of the navigator Columbus are buried in the cathedral's crypt.
[Plaza de España + Maria Luisa Park]Located in the tranquil and fresh atmosphere of Maria Luisa Park in the southern part of the city, the crescent-shaped classical architecture stands elegantly among the greenery, making it the most popular recreational spot for Seville citizens. The scene of the square, suitable for both quiet and lively activities, can be fully appreciated under the cover of yellow carriage wheels, which is intoxicating.
[Flamenco Dance]When visiting the birthplace of Flamenco in Seville, how can one miss this wonderful performance.
The birthplace of bullfighting art - Ronda, the old city of Ronda stands on a towering cliff, giving people a thrilling sense of grandeur. The Nuiebo Bridge spans the canyon and connects the old and new city streets in a very natural and appropriate way. This small city is peaceful and simple, and most of the attractions are in the old city. Ronda's fame is due to the prosperity of bullfighting culture and the American literary giant Hemingway. In his bullfighting-themed novel "Death in the Afternoon", he wrote: "If you want to go to Spain for your honeymoon or elope with someone, Ronda is the most suitable place, and the entire city is a romantic scenery..." It can be seen that this small town built on a cliff has such unique charm. You can stroll on the new bridge, see the bullring of the birthplace of bullfighting, and enjoy the view of the cliff on the Taholin shady walkway. Ronda is a place that needs to be savored slowly. It is also necessary to enjoy the most famous cuisine in the Andalusia region of southern Spain: [Special Oxtail Meal].
White Mountain City [Mihass] (about 1 hour visit): This lovely little town has very pleasing houses: white walls with red tiles, the whole town unfolds along the gently sloping foothills of the mountain, and its unique architectural style attracts photography enthusiasts from all over the world. Mihass's pure white and flawless romantic scenery also attracts people to come here for honeymoon trips, hoping that love can also return to the most flawless beauty because of the clean atmosphere here.
Picasso's hometown - Malaga, visit the "Malaga Beach", where you can take a leisurely stroll on the sandy beach of the sunny coast and listen to the sound of the sea.
The city of pomegranates, Granada, is a famous historical site that blends Muslim, Jewish, and Christian styles, making it a cultural and tourist hotspot in Spain. It was the political and cultural center of the Moorish kingdom established by Muslim Moors on the Iberian Peninsula, and is the pride of Andalusia, Spain, and a holy place in the hearts of Muslims. The Alhambra Palace, whose name comes from Arabic, meaning "Red Castle," is a representative of Arab-style palace courtyards, located on the Nevada Mountains outside Granada. The Alhambra Palace, a perfect combination of Islamic architecture and gardening, was selected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site as early as 1984. People who come to Granada are mostly there for the Alhambra Palace, listening to the guitar piece "Alhambra Palace," standing on the mountain and looking out over the entire city of Granada and the snow-capped Nevada Mountains behind them, the beauty of which makes people reluctant to leave.
Andalusia's another gem - Cordoba, the ancient Roman bridge and the Great Mosque of Cordoba are still in use today. The ancient Roman bridge, which has 16 arches, was originally built in the 1st century and underwent various degrees of renovation from the 13th to the 19th century. The Hundred Flower Lane is a quiet alley near the mosque in the Jewish quarter, which is a typical and peaceful alley in Cordoba. Unlike other areas in Andalusia, Cordoba is a city full of flowers, and everyone in the small town knows, loves, and grows flowers. This can be seen in the Hundred Flower Lane, where flowers hang on the walls, flower pots sit on the windowsills, and the fragrance of flowers permeates the narrow and winding alleyways.
Don Quixote's windmill village - Consuegra: 11 large and small windmills stand on the undulating hills, guarding a medieval castle, making people feel like they are in the era of medieval knight culture; these windmills are all made of stones and painted white, each round windmill base looks like a turret, appearing very sturdy; the windmills are about ten meters high, with huge wooden blades installed on the stone bases, against the backdrop of blue sky and white clouds, they look very spectacular.
World Heritage Site - Toledo. It is an ancient city that still retains the medieval style and is known as the "City of Three Cultures". From the prosperous ancient Roman streets, Jewish churches, Arab city gates, to the Catholic Gothic-style Goethe Church, and the Alcazar that witnessed the baptism of the Spanish Civil War, Toledo shows great charm with its well-preserved splendid historical and cultural heritage. UNESCO has listed it as a world heritage site. Toledo Cathedral is one of the largest Catholic cathedrals in the world and the pinnacle of Gothic art, as well as the best witness to history. The Puente de San Martin is a medieval bridge located on the Tagus River, built in the 13th century and named after the bishop of the diocese, San Martin, with Mudéjar architectural style. It is recommended to cross the bridge and take a panoramic photo of the beautiful Toledo with the Tagus River as the background.
Football fans celebrate + incredible Madrid ~~~~ In this mysterious city that is immersed in the day and lost at night, you can see magnificent palaces, squares, and monasteries, and art lovers can also wander in various museums. The Madrid Royal Palace and the Spanish Art Palace - [Prado Museum *] are known as the three major museums in the world along with the Louvre in Paris and the British Museum in London, and have the most precious art works in Spain and even in Europe. The most famous [Madrid Royal Palace *] is the official residence of the Spanish king. Each room is like a work of art, with velvet wall decorations and exquisite ceiling murals. It also collects famous works by the painter Goya. [Puerta del Sol Square + Mayor Square] Puerta del Sol Square is semi-circular, meaning the rising sun. There is a "zero point" (Kilometro Cero) sign here. All the national highway milestones in Spain start from here and are calculated outward, and the door numbers of Madrid are also based on this point. Mayor Square, near Puerta del Sol Square, was built during the Habsburg dynasty. The main building of the main square is the House of the Bakery (Casa de la Panaderia), which serves as a municipal and cultural function, and the exterior is covered with murals.
Segovia is the most spectacular World Heritage city in Spain. In "Notes on Traveling in Spain", Linda said, "Seeing the ancient Roman aqueduct, the money spent on air tickets from the United States to Spain is worth it." In addition to its magnificent architecture, this small city is also famous for its delicious roasted suckling pig. The aqueduct was built in ancient Roman times and is still well-preserved. It is 813 meters long, divided into two levels, with 148 arches, and 30.25 meters above the ground, with extraordinary momentum. The Alcazar Castle is located at the western end of Segovia and is the prototype of the castle in the Disney animation "Sleeping Beauty". The Michelin-recommended restaurant, Candido Restaurant, offers a special roasted suckling pig meal. This restaurant has a history of more than 200 years since its opening in 1786.
Very few cities are known as "someone's city", but Barcelona is known as Gaudi's city. Gaudi's architecture makes this city so unique and shining, and this city is also the place where he devoted his life and rested his soul. The Sagrada Familia is Gaudi's lifelong masterpiece, started in 1884 and still under construction after a century. The 170-meter-high tower, colorful mosaic decorations, spiral staircase, and vivid statues on the wall make the huge building look very light. Park Guell is where Gaudi transferred his amazing talent from architecture to garden planning. As soon as you enter the main gate of the park, you can see the lizard sculpture that often appears in travel guides. Going up the steps, you will discover a colorful surrealistic paradise, and Gaudi's former residence is also located here. Casa Mila is Gaudi's last private residence design, with three wavy walls, twisted iron bars and iron plates forming the balcony railings, and large windows that are very eye-catching. The six floors, top floor, and rooftop terrace of Casa Mila are open to the public, and the rooftop chimney is very special. From the balcony, you can also overlook some streets in the city center and see the Sagrada Familia in the distance. Casa Batllo is the blue telephone house transformed by Gaudi, and its design inspiration comes from the Catalan folk story of Saint George slaying the dragon to save the princess.
The romantic trip to Spain is coming to an end.

Just some of the places to sink your teeth and your feet into! 💜
I rarely watch Korean dramas, but I was fascinated by the recommended "Reminiscences of the Alhambra". I rarely fascinated by the drama. The concept of different general game scenes blending into the life of real people is very attractive. I am, but the most important thing is that I like the scenery inside. On the day of May, I went to Spain, and on the seventh day I went to the Alhambra.
The Alhambra is the famous forbidden palace in Spain, the royal palace of the Emir of Granada, established by the medieval Moors in Spain. For the Moors, the essence of all the monuments in Spain, known as the "city of palaces" and "world miracles."
It is not just a palace, but a city. Granada is located in the northern part of Andalusia, at the foot of the Sierra Nevada, near a plain of irrigation. The ancient city is situated on three hills, and the Alhambra is located at the highest point on the mountain. The layout of the palace is actually very strict. It is divided into three parts: administrative place, activity ceremonial place, and royal residence. They are independent and subtly connected. In the Alhambra, the most famous is the ambassador hall, two Sisters, lion atriums and large baths.
The fascinating Alhambra
Alhambra is the royal palace of the Granada kingdom established by the medieval Moors in Spain. Arabic means red fort. After the Moors were expelled from Spain, the building began to be abandoned. Later, with the support of Ferdinand VII, the architects Jose Contreras and other long-term repairs and reconstructions restored the original features. We booked tickets for the Nasri Palace at 2 pm (you must make an appointment, otherwise you will be queued at 6 o'clock in the morning, after all, there is a limit for the number of people in each time period). At 12 o'clock, you have already arrived at the scenic spot, thinking about it. Let's go to other free places to see. As a result, neither the Summer Palace nor the Fort Akasaba will be allowed. Only the Carlos V Palace can. So booked 2 tickets, all paid attractions must be 2 o'clock before entering. Although Nasirs Palace, Akasaba Fort and Summer Palace are separate attractions, as long as they meet the visit time, it is completely OK to go out from one toll attraction and then go to another toll attraction. Remember that each toll attraction cannot be used. Going in again, the staff at the door were very careful to check the ticket.
Introduce some personal favorite spots. The design of the palace must first mention: How did the glass not be used in ancient times? The Moors used a very laborious but extravagant way to cut out a honeycomb window! If a person quietly stays in a closed space for a whole day, watching the sun cast the shape of the light hole on a dim roof or wall, moving with the sun's trajectory, it is good to feel the passage of time. Experience. The
myrtle atrium is enclosed by marble columns, with a shallow, flat rectangular reflecting pool and a beautiful central fountain. Two rows of myrtle hedges lined up on the side of the pool, which is also the source of the name of the atrium. The
lion atrium is said to be the place where Alfonso XI and his lover have fun, and she is legendary the most beautiful woman in Spain. From the castle you can look out over the Sierra Nevada. The
Henry Lofer Garden consists of two groups of buildings connected by a canal atrium, all of which are fairly stable, simple and simple. This means that when the king retires, he longs for the garden to provide an intimate and tranquil atmosphere. There are only some decorative patterns of stucco, which are not too exaggerated, but still show exquisiteness and taste. The
summer garden is very beautiful and offers panoramic views of the palace. In addition, it is recommended to go to the Nicholas Lookout to enjoy the palace at sunset, beautiful!
The Alhambra Palace is located in Granada and is a must-see for travel in Spain. I won't say this before I go, but after I finish, I am sure to say: I won't regret it! ! !
After writing the travel notes, many friends have just commented on the "Reminiscences of the Alhambra". Although I have not seen this drama, I must strongly enrich the palace!
Before I went online, I checked the Alhambra. There were very few photos taken. I didn't expect much from this attraction, but it was the most amazing sight in Spain. Ticket prices are also very conscience compared to other palaces and famous attractions.
is also a medieval Islamic building, even for me who have been to India, it was amazing by this palace. Going to Spain strongly recommends that you must go to the sights, it is worth spending a day in it. It can be said that if you have been to the A Palace, then you will go to other palaces to be floating clouds...
Address: Calle Real de la Alhambra
Alcazar is an important military castle during the reign of Islam and is evidence that Islam has existed here for a long time.

After the Moors were expelled from Spain in 1492, the building began to be abandoned. In 1828, under the aid of Ferdinand VII, the architect Jose Contreras and his sons and grandchildren carried out long-term repairs and reconstructions. Only restore the original style. Today, the Alhambra is a World Heritage Site, attracting countless visitors and a large footprint. The
summer palace consists of two groups of buildings connected by a canal atrium. However, it is difficult to know the most primitive form of the summer palace, because it has undergone many different revisions during the Christian period. These modifications were necessary because of the deterioration and neglect of the post-Muslim period, and then the entire design arrangement was changed, and all the buildings were quite stable, simple and simple. This means that when the king retires, he longs for the garden to provide an intimate and tranquil atmosphere. There are only some decorative patterns of stucco, which are not too exaggerated, but still show exquisiteness and taste. Inside the
court, the exquisite carvings of the Moorish architectural style have been seen here. The carvings here are so fine, and to what extent Nasred Palace is perfect, suddenly filled with illusions.
