My boyfriend and I had paella, a typical Spanish dish, rice with fish and meat together, and it was very good. Fresh fish and very tasty; also, the same for the meat we had the day after - was very good.

The Alhambra was a palace, a citadel, a fortress, and home of the Narsrid sultans, high government officials, servants of the court, and elite soldiers (from the 13th century to the 15th century). Today the monument is divided into four main areas: the Palaces, the military area of Alcazaba, the City or Medina, and the agricultural estate of the Generallife. It also includes noteworthy buildings of different periods, such as the Renaissance-style Charles V Palace, housing the Alhambra Museum, with items taken chiefly from the Monument, and the Museum of Fine Arts.

All of these areas are in the natural surroundings of woods, gardens, and orchards.
