The Alhambra (Red Fortress in Arabic) was a Moorish palace and castle built outside the city of Granada during the rule of the Nasrid Dynasty (1212-1492). When Spanish forces under King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella captured the city in 1492, the Alhambra became the property of the Spanish crown. Today, it is one of Spains most important tourist attractions, and even was considered for one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, decided upon in 2007.
