The Alhambra, Crown Jewel of Granada

The Alhambra is considered one of the finest examples of the earliest Islamic Art. The exteriors are dramatic but the interior is breathtaking. Intricate carved stone, lace like and coloured, tiles and mosaic patterns that convey religious messages. It is also an eclectic mix of styles as influences changed from eastern to western.
