The Golden Hour


The Alhambra is a palace fortress in Granada, Spain. It was constructed in the mid 14th century for the last Muslim Emirs of the Nasrid dynasty. Today, it is one of the most visited destinations in the world, famed for its Islamic architecture and sprawling gardens. If you’re visiting, book tickets way in advance. You can collect them from the many La Caixa terminals in town. In addition, entry to the Nasrid palaces is strict and governed by time bands, so planning ahead is a must.

A popular spot to see the entire complex is from the Mirador de San Nicolas lookout in the Albaycin district of Granada.
