The Alhambra

The Alhambra, called this way because of his red walls («qa'lat al-Hamra'», Red Castle), is located in the top of al-Sabika's hill, at the left side of the Darro river, eastside of Granada city, in front of Albaicin and Alcazaba quarters.

His strategic location, since it dominates the whole city and Granada's meadow, make us think that there were other constructions before the Muslims arrived.

Its complex, completely fortified, has an irregular form that limits in its north par with the Darro valley, at the south with al-Sabika ant at the east with "Cuesta del Rey Chico", that separates the Albaicin from the Generalife.

Carmen of Rodríguez-Acosta Foundation

Located in the same valley that the Alhambra, the headquarter building of the Rodríguez-Acosta foundation is one of the most beautiful architectural endeavour of its time. Built in the first years of XX Century, its commitment to modern and the excellence of the ideas, designs and materials used in its conception and construction, give it a long-lasting validity, as recognised in its declaration as a National Monument in 1982.

The place was the study of the painter Jose María Rodríguez-Acosta and it has a singular combination of gardens and a huge collection of art pieces, from the ancient art to modern art that makes a wonderful tour through the building that includes old caves and underground galleries.
