Alhambra Palace(the Red Palace)
The Alhambra Palace is a palace and fortress complex located in Granada.It was originally constructed as a small fortress in AD 889 on the remains of Roman fortifications,and then largely ignored until its ruins were renovated and rebuilt in the mid-13th century by the Moorish emir Mohammed ben Al-Ahmar of the Emirate of Granada,who built its current palace and walls.It was converted into a royal palace in 1333 by Yusuf I,Sultan of Granada.After the conclusion of the Christian Reconquista in 1492,the site became the Royal Court of Ferdinand and Isabella(where Christopher Columbus received royal endorsement for his expedition),and the palaces were partially altered to Renaissance tastes.
