The Amazing Alhambra Palace

By Martine Thompson Subscribe to RSS | April 24th 2012 | Views:

One of the most amazing tourist attractions in Granada has to be the amazing Alhambra Palace. It is a must to view this superb palace which gives Granada its fame. The Alhambra Palace spreads itself across the hill like a majestic fort that gives spectacular views of Granada.

Outer beauty

The Alhambra Palace has beautiful gardens which are well tended at all times of the year. There are many species of colorful flowers and shrubs with plenty of fountains and sculptors. The hedges in the gardens are well cut and maintained with a perfect planning on their layout and balance. There are many mazes in the garden; each made up of seven-foot hedges. There are numerous architecturally elaborate buildings and towers with a supreme affluence. The outdoors of the palace alone is sufficient to occupy the tourist’s day with a leisure stroll around the gardens and fortress wall perimeters. It can be quite cool in the winter and warm in the summer.

There are many fine details in Arabic inscribed on stone walls that are high and towering. Domed ceilings also display intricate stone carvings as with the numerous towers and turrets. There are many steps to climb which can be quite steep to reach the top of the tower or turret before one can enjoy the spectacular views from them. One section of the palace has the shape of the Roman Coliseum although it is part of the courtyard but one can identify the extravagance in its architecture.

Tips to consider

There is a lot to see in Alhambra, so it is better to start early. Parking may be a problem; taking the public transport is wiser as this is regular and cheaper besides saving time from rounding for a parking. It is advisable to get an e-ticket for the Alhambra tour in the summer as queues can be quite long without one. A headset hire comes with a tape which offers an informative virtual tour. There are plenty of restaurants at Alhambra Palace but the food may be expensive. Hence, one can bring along a picnic. Good walking shoes are important while visiting the Alhambra Palace as there are many uneven floors and steep steps. The Alhambra Palace makes a great place for any tourist who wants to get a feel of the place. One might have to take another day to go through the interior of the Alhambra if one were to enjoy the best of this amazing place leisurely.
