Notes on the Geography of Spain: Granada: the Palaces of the Alhambra: Photo 1

world pictures Spain: Granada: the Palaces of the Alhambra

Only two of the Alhambra's six palaces survived into the 19th century: they are the ones flanking the never-occupied palace of Charles V, on the right in this picture.  In order to build that palace, Charles knocked down some of the Nazrid buildings.  The ruins of others lie in the foreground and still others are behind the surviving buildings. The palace exteriors offer no hint of what lies within, on the theory that external opulence attracts trouble.
