For more than five hundred years, the Alhambra in Granada has fascinated travelers and visitors not only by the splendor of its palaces, but also for the beauty and freshness of the Generalife Gardens, through which landscape and architecture makes a extraordinary space where water is both a common thread and factor, with the vegetation integrated into the architecture through the ornament, covering panels, arches and columns. A single image that dominates the landscape of Granada from the Sabika Hill.
Look at the trees surrounded by streams:
They are like guests who ditches serves [...]
The Sabika is a crown on the head of Granada,
In which the stars would like to embed.
And the Alhambra-God watch over her! -
It is a ruby on the top of the crown
Ibn Zamrak, poet of the Alhambra (1333-1393)
