Where and what is Alhambra?

Alhambra is in Grenada, Spain.

Once upon a time the Alhambra was an "alcazaba" (fortress), an "alcazar" (palace) and a small "medina" (city), all in one. But now it is a ruin left by the great Muslim Empire of Andalucia.

The name Alhambra comes from an Arabic root which means "red or crimson castle", perhaps due to the hue of the towers and walls that surround the entire hill of La Sabica which by starlight is silver but by sunlight is transformed into gold.
