Witnessing what the Spirit of Al-Andalus once was, Granada is home to to daily stream of 4-8 thousand visitors who glimpse in wonder at what was the motto of a time: Wa lã Galiba illallah, There is no victor but God. The display of beautiful Arabic invocations, reminders inscribed within the palaces and gardens of the Alhambra, crown the city from the ledge of La Sabika, echoing through the surrounding valleys harmonious to the natural surroundings of a unique location. The city is secured by concentric fortified city walls which trace Granada back to it’s origin as a Muslim and Jewish refugee city and the last Muslim Kingdom of Al-Andalus. Nowadays considered Human Heritage Site by UNESCO, the city of Granada produced and safeguarded perhaps the most prosperous era of Islamic Heritage from Al-Andalus, allowing for the condensation and evolution of Andalusi arts and culture a further 250 years after the rest of Al-Andalus had fallen to the newly branded Christian Spain in 1492.  We may also experience and discover later stages fusion of Islamic Heritage into Spanish culture today, though the Al-Hamra itself, which attracts up to 10 thousand travelers per day and is one of the  most popular UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Europe.

There was a time when the entire Christian Peninsula was said to live off the taxes collected from the Kingdom of Granada, this was the price the prosperous Muslim Kingdom paid to remain in peace. Although not all times were equally stable. Just over two centuries later, Isabel the Catholic of Castille and Fernando II of Aragon, would unite in a marriage that would prove itself deadly to “heretics” (Muslims and Jews). Having established the ‘Holy Inquisition’ in 1480, this would be the the beginning of a violent farewell to Islam in Spain.

You will note as you approach Granada the town of Santa Fé. This town was founded by Isabel and Fernando after the Christian army had camped at the site for 10 years, in their siege of the city of Granada. After this long and stalled checkmate around the city of Granada, the Kingdom was signed over to the Catholic Kings, in the Alhambra itself, by the last Muslim King of Granada: Muhammad Abu Abdullah in 1492, only after guaranteeing Muslim rights in his Kingdom.
