Alhambra Generalife

Granada, Andalucia, Spain

Generalife

The Generalife was the leisure villa of the Sultans of Granada & their families. Surrounded by orchards & gardens this was the place that Granada's rulers came to relax. As no state business was conducted here the architecture is somewhat plainer than in other parts of the Alhambra.

Instead it is the gardens of the Generalife that are most prized, & are magnificent when in full bloom. Water is used to great effect here, with fountains gracing the external gardens & internal courtyard alike.
