About Generalife, Granada

Though right next to the Alhambra, the Generalife is considered to be a different structure altogether, mostly because it had a different purpose. The Alhambra was a palace that had living quarters and places for the palace business. The Generalife was built in the early 14th century with one purpose, to get away from it all, especially during the hot summer months. Visiting the gardens of the Generalife (which means "gardens of the architect") one can marvel at the sophistication of Arab engineering, ingenuity and architecture. Using primitive hydraulics and a good understanding of physics the Arab rulers built this summer palace with multiple fountains, pools of water and beautiful gardens to really make the spot habitable during the heat. Just perfect to stroll around slowly, taking in the greenery of its many gardens and the cool air from the fountains.
