Granada Trip

Granada was definitely one of the most unique cities I have ever been so far in my Spain trip.
Granada is in the autonomous community of Andalusia, Spain and it is located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains, even though it was June, we were still able to see some snow on top of the mountain. Unlike Madrid, Granada had an Arabic vibe throughout the city and the environment was so overwhelming and amazing because I have never been in an Arabic environment like Granada in my life. After talking to few Arabic workers in the street, I learned that they were all getting ready to close their stores for the night to get ready for Ramadan.

The Alhambra is a famous palace and fortress complex located in Granada, Spain.
It is known as one of the greatest masterpieces of Arab art in the world as it is also part of UNESCO World Heritage site. It was first built as a simple fortress in the ninth century and the word "Alhambra" means "The Red", which is the color of the material used in its construction.
