Above Granada, visible from the distance, the Alcazaba is the solitary forbear of an entire palatine city which would later come to be known as Madinat al-Hamra (The citadel of the Alhambra). Of the thirty or more towers which originally fortified the ramparts surrounding the Alhambra twenty-two still exist, each with its own name usually based on mundane usage. In this photo gallery you can see some towers which are seldom open to the public.
