Alhambra and Generalife
With a strategic location at the top of the Sabika hill, in the 9th century the Alcazaba that protected the Nasrid kingdom. It was in the 13th century when King Mohammad I, better known as Al-Ahmar, decided to establish his residence and ordered the construction of the luxurious Nasrid Palaces and gradually a medina with its own water system and other constructions such as noble houses, workshops, public baths, cisterns and more common dwellings where the servants lived.
Among beautiful gardens we also find the Generalife Palace or the residence of the Kings. After the 10-year war, in 1492, the Catholic King Carlos I wanted to preserve the Alhambra, although he had his own palace built within the palatine city. The enclosure went through different states of conservation as it passed from one dynasty to another, but it was in the War of Independence when the French invaders destroyed a most of the fortifications and although the intention was also to blow up the Nasrid Palaces, the feat of the Corporal José García, putting his own body first, managed to avoid a greater damage.
In 1870 it was declared a monument, and since then there has been constant work on the recovery and reconstruction of abandoned or attacked areas.
Unesco declared it a World Heritage Site in 1984. This great architectural gem preserves the great secrets of the Andalusian legacy and even today Nasrid drawings, letters and other curiosities are still being discovered with which we learn new meanings of their art.
