Before visiting the Alhambra I did not know too much about it. I was aware that it was a must see destination in Granada and I roughly knew that it was a Moorish Castle that had some sort of ties to the famous English Queen Katherine of Aragon. What I did not know was the Generalife gardens were amazing in their own right and that I would be completely blown away by its beauty.
Stairway in the beautiful Generalife Gardens, Granada / Spain (by Warren Bodnaruk). The beautiful Generalife gardens reside above the Alhambra in Granada, Spain. The Generalife was built in the 13th century and it occupies the slopes of the Hill of the Sun (Cerro del Sol), from which there is a complete view over the city and the valleys of the rivers Genil and Darro. Definitely the most extravagant and beautiful gardens I've ever seen!
