Sacromonte viewpoint

The entire Alhambra complex, excluding the Generalife Gardens, which are further to the left out of the picture. From the left to the center is the Palace of the Nazaries, as well as a large unfinished building started by King Charles or something of Spain (the Catholic monarchs took over the Alhambra after defeating the Moors, and naturally they decided it was too small and needed expansion). On the right is the oldest part of the Alhambra, an area that housed Moorish guards and features a watchtower, far right, that has fantastic views of the whole valley.
