Spain-Granada, Torremolinos, Costa de Sol
Ok, sorry for not posting anything for such a long time. And although it's like 2 months since I'm back from Spain, this is the continuation for my trip. It's gonna be a long post mainly coz it's filled with pictures. I couldn't decide which to upload, so in the end I uploaded so many. Bear with me. ごめん！But it's really beautiful..so enjoy..
On this day, we went to visit the Alhambra Palace in Granada. Built by the Moorish rulers since the 13th century, the architecture has a very Middle East touch to it. The Alhambra is made up of gardens, fountains, streams, a palace, and a mosque, all within an imposing fortress wall, flanked by 13 massive towers. Alhambra Palace was completed towards the end of Muslim rule in Spain and is a reflection of the culture of the last days of the Nasrid Kingdom. It also served as a shelter for artists and intellectuals who took refuge as Christian Spain won victories over Al Andalus. Later, the Moorish rulers lost Granada and Alhambra in 1492 when King Ferdinand II of Aragon and Queen Isabella of Castile took over the surrounding region. After the Christian conquest of the city, the conquerors began to alter the Alhambra. The Alhambra architecture now is a mixture of both Muslim and Christian influence.
The entrance. Another entrance. The path to the garden.

The entrance to the garden, also known as Torres Generalife. No, it's not pronounced as "general life", but sounds totally different. Dun ask me how to pronounce it coz I forgot.
