AlhambraPosted: November 26, 2011
Alhambra – an alluring, romantic and significant monument to the Arabic/Spanish historical tale. It’s not difficult to see why Alhambra is Spains most visited tourist attraction. In 1237 when the Arabic Sultan Muhammad I al-Hamar, decided to build his “village of palaces”, he hoped to create “paradise on earth.” We think he got pretty close. It is mind boggling to imagine the wealth required to build this monument and incredible to imagine the lives of the privileged few who were born with the right to live here.
Everywhere you look is a picture, a jewel! It whets our appetites and increases our excitement as we journey to an Islamic heartland – Morocco.
It’s definitely a case of letting the photos do the talking!
