Dominating the granada sky

Its disturbing figure dominates the entire sky of Granada with the Torre de Vela as standard and with a clear declaration of intent: La Alcazaba marked the beginning of the city in the Alhambra in the 13th century.

It is the oldest part, everything started there: La Medina, with more than 5.000 people living there, different shops, houses, warehouses and the later palaces so impressive today.

The structure and design definitely indicate that it is a military fortress and that it had defensive purposes. One day, the sultan Mohamed I, arriving from North Africa, decided to look for a site that was well protected and at the same time functional, where he could see the entire territory of Granada. With the natural defence of the hill of Sarika, la Alcazaba started to take the shape as a new town in the Kingdom of Granada.

From the highest part, one can spot the perfect remains of the design of the Medina and the military neighbourhood, as well as the most impressive images of the fertile plain of Granada, the Nasrid Palaces and the Palace of Carlos V.

The famous bell of the tower was put up in the period of the Catholic Kings and was used as a reminder of the conquest.

That's the Alhambra, first a fortress, then a palatino city and now an amazing place for everyone. The best views, without a doubt, from the San Nicolás gazebo.

The fortress is the fortress protecting the palace of the Alhambra in Granada. It is the oldest part of the Alhambra, which was begun in the thirteenth century, during the reign of Sultan Alhamar Nazari. This was rejected in northern Andalusia and decided to settle in Granada. Today not much remains of the walls, but the nice thing is getting on the citadel, because from above dominate the city, you have a view on the other palaces, the Nasrid Palaces, the Generalife, the palace of Charles V, and the old Albaizyn neighborhood of Granada. Also in the distance you can admire the Sierra Nevada and the mountains of the region. The Sail Tower is the largest tower, which the Christians, to retake the city, added a bell, called the candle. The sound then used to ads victory over the Moors. It was the quintessential symbol of Christianity. From the top of the tower, is another viewpoint of the city, the San Nicolás viewpoint, hill above the old town of Granada.

La alcazaba es la fortaleza que protegía el palacio de la Alhambra de Granada. Es la parte más vieja de la Alhambra, que se empezó a construir en el siglo XIII, durante el reino del sultán nazarí Alhamar.

Este había sido rechazado del norte de Andalucía y decidió instalarse en Granada. Hoy no queda mucho de la muralla, pero lo bonito, es subirse a la alcazaba, porque desde arriba dominas toda la ciudad, tienes una vista sobre los demás palacios, los palacios nazaríes, la Generalife, el palacio de Carlos V, y el viejo barrio del Albaizyn de Granada. También a lo lejos puedes admirar la Sierra Nevada y las montañas de la región.

La torre de la Vela es la torre más grande, a la que los cristianos, al volver a tomar la ciudad, agregaron una campana, que se llamaba la vela. La usaron luego para sonar los anuncios de victoria sobre los moros. Era el símbolo por excelencia del cristianismo.

Desde arriba de la torre, se ve el otro mirador de la ciudad, el mirador San Nicolás, encima de la colina del barrio viejo de Granada.

Alcazar

The two-hour visit to the Alhambra (from Arabic الحمراء, "the Red") and the Generalife (literally "garden of the Sultan") is worth the trip in the autonomous community of Andalusia. A huge building, perfectly preserved, which appears at the top of the hill that overlooks the city of Granada. The headquarters of Sultan is rich in green, water games and the walls are finely decorated. Visit the complex is to have the look attracted a thousand particularities contemporaneously. It is a true monument of Islamic art. Alhambra is a walled city that occupies almost the entire La Sabika hill, with the Darro river running through a ravine that divides the plateau and one of the neighborhoods of the city of Granada. Granada had its own system of walls and Alhambra could remain autonomous, with schools, shops, mosques, besides the royal palace. Much of the construction of the complex was performed between 1248 and 1354, during the reigns of Ibn al-Ahmar and his successors. Muslim intellectuals and artists sought refuge in Alhambra after the Christian victories in Al Andalus. This made the walled city was enriched by craftsmen and become so special. It was during the battles between Arabs and muladis, occurred during the reign of Abdallah ibn Muhammad (888-912) that the first references to Qal'at al Hamra. The Arabs defeated by muladis took refuge in a primitive red castle in what is now Granada. This castle was small and its walls unable to stop an army. Forgotten until the eleventh century, was rebuilt to try to preserve a small Jewish community located in La Sabika hill. Easily conquered, the fortress that stands to this day was built by the dynasty Nasrida. The visit costs € 13.00

Alcazar

A visita de duas horas a Alhambra (do árabe الحمراء, "a Vermelha") e do Generalife (literalmente “jardim do sultão”) já vale a viagem na comunidade autônoma de Andaluzia. Uma gigantesca construção, perfeitamente conservada, que surge no alto da colina que domina a cidade de Granada. A sede do sultão é rica de verde, jogos d’água e as paredes são finamente decoradas. Visitar o complexo é ter o olhar atraído por mil particularidades contemporaneamente. É um verdadeiro monumento da arte islâmica.

Alhambra é uma cidade murada que ocupa quase toda a colina La Sabika, com o rio Darro correndo em uma ravina que divide o planalto e um dos bairros da cidade de Granada. Granada tinha o seu próprio sistema de muralhas e Alhambra podia permanecer autônoma, com escolas, oficinas, mesquitas, além do palácio real.

Boa parte da construção do complexo foi executada entre 1248 e 1354, nos reinados de Ibn-al-Ahmar e seus sucessores. Intelectuais e artistas muçulmanos buscavam refúgio em Alhambra após as vitórias cristãs no Al Andalus. Isso fez com que a cidade murada fosse enriquecida pelos artesãos e se tornasse tão especial.

Foi durante as batalhas entre árabes e muladis, ocorridas durante o reinado de Abdallah ibn Muhammad (888-912) que surgiram as primeiras referências ao Qal’at al Hamra. Os árabes, derrotados pelos muladis se refugiaram em um primitivo castelo vermelho onde hoje é Granada. Tal castelo era pequeno e suas muralhas incapazes de deter um exército. Esquecido até o século XI, foi reconstruído para tentar preservar uma pequena comunidade judia localizada na colina La Sabika. Facilmente conquistada, a fortaleza que resiste até os nossos dias foi construída pela dinastia Nasrida.

A visita custa € 13,00

Imposing

Definitely the Alcazaba is a mega construction, can not reach the stop wondering how it was built. Climb the tower is the best part because you have a spectacular view of Granada, the Barrio del Sacromonte, Albaicin and fresh air you can take there comes in handy after that climb. Totally worth it.

Imponente

Sin duda el Alcazaba es una mega construcción, al llegar a el no puedes dejar de preguntarte cómo lo construyeron. Subir a su torre es la mejor parte porque tienes una vista espectacular de toda Granada, del Barrio del Sacromonte, Albaycín y el aire fresco que puedes tomar allí viene muy bien después de esa subida. Vale la pena totalmente.

The alcazaba fortress that protected ...

The Alcazaba fortress that protected the Palace of the Alhambra in Granada. This is the oldest part of the Alhambra, which began to be built in the thirteenth century, during the reign of Sultan Alhamar Nazarene. He had been expelled from the north of Andalusia and decided to settle in Granada. Today, it is not much left of the wall, but you can go up, and dominates the whole city, there is a superb view of the other palaces, the palace of the Nazarenes, the Generalife, the palace of Charles V, and the old quarter of the Albaizin of Granada, with its small white houses with tiled roofs, on the other side of the valley. Basically, there are snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada and the mountains of the region. The Torre de la Vela is the tallest tower in which Christians, resuming power in the city added a bell, called la vela. They used to ring announcing victories over the Muslims. It was the ultimate symbol of Christianity. From the top of the tower, we see another view of the city, the Saint Nicolas viewpoint at the top of the hill the old quarter of Granada.

L´Alcazaba est la forteresse qui protégeait le palais de l´Alhambra de Grenade. C´est la plus vieille partie de l´Alhambra, qui a commencé à etre construite au XIIIème siècle, sous le règne du sultan nazaréen Alhamar.

Ce dernier avait été chassé du nord de l´Andalousie et décidé de s´installer à Grenade. Aujourd´hui, il ne reste pas grand-chose de la muraille, mais on peut y monter, et dominer ainsi toute la ville, il y a une vue superbe sur les autres palais, les palais des nazaréens, la Generalife, le palais de Charles Quint, et le vieux quartier de l´Albaizin de Grenade, avec ses petites maisons blanches aux toits de tuiles, de l´autre coté de la vallée. Au fond, on distingue les sommets enneigés de la Sierra Nevada, et les montagnes de la région.

La tour de la Vela est la plus haute tour, à laquelle les chrétiens, en reprenant le pouvoir dans la ville ont ajouté une cloche, qui s´appelait la vela. Ils l´utilisaient pour sonner l´annonce des victoires sur les musulmans. C´était le symbole absolu du christianisme. Depuis le haut de la tour, on voir l´autre point de vue de la ville, le mirador de Saint Nicolas, tout en haut de la colline du vieux quartier de Grenade.

I was in Granada in 2006 (I think) with my family. The fact that the city I was delighted, I loved walking and then there is a pretty good environment. But after seeing the Alhambra I can admit that I fell in love with the city, will not be long in back

Estuve en Granada en 2006 (creo) con mi familia. La verdad que la ciudad me estaba encantando, me gustaba mucho pasear y luego hay bastante buen ambiente. Pero después de ver la Alhambra puedo admitir que me enamoré de la ciudad, no tardaré mucho en volver

The Alhambra is a must if you go through Granada. The gardens with fountains, palaces and fortresses dominating the sky of Granada and one of the most beautiful sunsets that you can ever see, make it one of those places you have to be accompanied to have someone share later. And after sunset from the gardens of the Generalife, have to go for tapas in the city. Free tapa with each drink and great atmosphere in one of the cities with the best university environment of Spain (near Salamanca and Santiago).

La Alhambra es una visita obligada si pasas por Granada. Los jardines con sus juegos de agua, los palacios y fortalezas dominando el cielo de Granada y una de las puestas de sol mas bonitas que podréis ver nunca, hacen que sea uno de esos sitios a los que hay que ir acompañado para tener alguien con quien compartirlo después.
Y tras la puesta de sol desde los jardines del generalife, toca ir de tapeo por la ciudad. Tapa gratis con cada consumición y mucho ambiente en una de las ciudades con mejor ambiente universitario de España (junto a Salamanca y Santiago).

The Alcazaba is the oldest part of the magnificent Alhambra Palace, overlooking the Andalusian city of Granada. After climbing to the palace through the forest, evergreen despite the summer heat of southern Spain (the Romans had a certain talent for irrigation!), We are left speechless at the panorama offered by the Tour the Watch, with the city ahead on the right, the hill of the Albaicin, and behind all the palaces and mountains of the Sierra Nevada ... A great moment, it spends hours without boredom!

La Alcazaba, c'est la partie la plus ancienne du magnifique palais de l'Alhambra, qui surplombe la ville andalouse de Grenade. Après avoir grimpé jusqu'au palais par la forêt, toujours verte malgré la chaleur estivale du Sud de l'Espagne (les Romains avaient un certain talent en matière d'irrigation!), on se retrouve sans voix devant le panorama offert par la Tour du Guet, avec devant soi la ville, sur sa droite, la colline de l'Albaicin, et derrière, l'ensemble du palais et les montagnes de la Sierra Nevada...Un grand moment, on y passe des heures sans ennui!

Wonderful

I was there in 2010 and I could get to see the whole fort with its palaces, gardens etc ... I can only say that it is a wonder that the major work of Arab architecture has reached our days, is that as the saying goes , the greatest punishment is to be blind in Granada ...

Maravilloso

Estuve allí en 2010 y pude entrar a contemplar toda la fortaleza, con sus palacios, jardines etc...solo puedo decir que es una maravilla que la obra mayor de la arquitectura árabe haya llegado a nuestros días, y es que como dice el refrán, el mayor castigo es ser ciego en Granada...
