The Alcazaba (also known as the red fort, due to the color of the rock that makes up its walls) is the oldest part of the Alhambra. No doubt a fort was located at this location through much of historic time, but the current buildings date back to the 1200's AD. The fort was remodeled by the Moors, who added a very long outer wall in which they built the Nasrid Palaces.

Photo Above - A view of the Alcazaba from its highest tower, Torre de la Vela. The primary reason to visit the Alcazaba is to climb to the top of this tower and relish the spectacular views of the city of Granada and surrounding countryside.
