MOST VISITED TOURIST ATTRACTION IN EUROPE: THE ALHAMBRA PALACE.( JUST 40 MINUTES DRIVE AWAY FROM THE CORTIJO).
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. But there is another more poetic version, evoked by the Moslem analysts who speak of the construction of the Alhambra fortress 'by the light of torches', the reflections of which gave the walls their particular coloration. Created originally for military purposes, the Alhambra was an 'alcazaba' (fortress), an 'alcázar' (palace) and a small 'medina' (city), all in one. This triple character helps to explain many distinctive features of the monument.
MOSQUE OF CORDOBA.
The Great Mosque of Cordoba was considered a wonder of the medieval world by both Muslims and Christians. Built on a Visigothic site, which was probably the site of an earlier Roman temple, the Great Mosque of Cordoba was begun between 784 and 786 during the reign of 'Abd al-Rahman, who escaped from Syria to the Iberian Peninsula.
