Granada, Spain: Alhambra Complex

Madrid Train Station, on the way to Granada
My friend and I arrived in Grenada at 1:30pm and hit the ground running! After we found our hostel we jetted up the hill to buy tickets for the Alhambra. Words and even pictures cannot describe the beauty that awaited us. The Alhambra is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It contains the remains of a Moorish(who ruled Spain for 700 years: 700's-1400's before the conquest of Los Reyes Catholicos) palace and fortress complex.   

Next to Rio Darro in the Albayzin neighborhood in Granada
Taking a break from the long, steep walk to the Alhambra grounds.
