Alhambra (Arabic: الْحَمْرَاء, trans. al-Ḥamrāʼ; literally "the red one", feminine; in colloquial Arabic: el-Ḥamra ), the complete form of which was Calat Alhambra, is a palace and fortress complex located in Granada, Andalusia, Spain. It was constructed during the mid 14th century by the Amazigh ruler Badess Ben Habuss of the Emirate of Granada in al-Andalus, occupying the top of the hill of the Assabica on the southeastern border of the city of Granada.
The Alhambra's Moorish palaces were built for the last Muslim Emirs in Spain and its court, of the Nasrid dynasty. After the Reconquista (reconquest) by the Reyes Católicos ("Catholic Monarchs") in 1492, some portions were used by the Christian rulers. [from Wikipedia]
