The name Alhambra means "red or purple castle", perhaps because of the hue of the towers and walls that surround the entire LaSabica hill. The Alhambra was a fortress, a palace, and a small town, all in one.
Patio de Los Leones
The Lion Patio is probably the most famous part of the Alhambra. It is so named because of the twelve lions that throw water jets and that are part of the fountain in the middle of the atrium.
