Just East of Eden

A reminder that beautiful things often follow upon the heels of great tragedy, the Alhambra is a fortress/palace built by the Berbers in the 10th century and steeped in the blood of the Reconquista. The palace is undeniably breathtaking; a monument to a culture hanging on to history by a thread. With your eyes raised to the spectacularly tiled ceiling in the Palacios Nazaries (Moorish Palace), you'll feel that this place has earned every bit of its beauty through time-tried suffering. While you are there, don't forget to scale the top of the rose-hued fort for truly majestic views of the city or explore the palace of Charles V. Guided tours are available every morning at ten. It takes at least two and a half hours to go around the whole site, but don't be afraid to stay longer if you like the history.
