Granada: a visit to the Alhambra

It’s said that the Alhambra, the complex of palaces and forts used by Granada’s last Muslim rulers, is Europe’s most visited tourist attraction. It wasn’t always this way. The entire complex was in ruins around the turn of the century when it was discovered by American writer Washington Irving and popularized among the educated smart set that travelled Europe.

Since then, the buildings have been magnificently restored and the complex is well worth the better part of a day we spent wandering.
