1. southern Spain rocks and it is a part of many of our private Spain custom adventures!..... The Alhambra, in southern Spains Andalucia region, is one of most memorable and evocative sites in Europe. It is a citadel that once housed 2000+ people with exotic oriental-style decor in the palaces and gardens and also a medieval fortress complex. This is the star of Granada, Andalusia, Spain. It was constructed during the mid 10th century by the Berber ruler Badis ben Habus of the Kingdom 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 Islamic 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. The Palace of Charles V, built by Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor in 1527, was inserted in the Alhambra within the Nasrid fortifications. After being allowed to fall into disrepair for centuries, the Alhambra was "discovered" in the 19th century by European scholars and travelers, with restorations commencing.

    It is now one of Spain's major tourist attractions, exhibiting the country's most significant and well known Berber Islamic architecture, together with 16th-century and later Christian building and garden interventions. The Alhambra is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the inspiration for many songs and stories.

  2. Located right on Via de la Plata, Merida is heir to a glorious Roman past. His theater, amphitheater or temple dedicated to the goddess Diana make the former capital of Roman Lusitania one of the best preserved archaeological sites in Spain, allowing you to have the declaration of World Heritage.
    This immense Roman legacy reflected in the National Museum of Roman Art, where you can learn about the past of the city through a rich collection of objects from Merida and its vicinity.

    The capital of Extremadura has a calendar filled with interesting cultural events, among which each summer the Festival of Classical Theatre, one of the most important of which are organized in Spain.

    Merida's history is closely linked to Roman expansion in the Iberian Peninsula. Its foundation as a city would take place in the year 25. C. under the rule of Emperor Augustus, who would take his first name, Emerita Augusta.
