ALHAMBRA, Granada, Spain.
A citadel and palace in Granada , Spain.


This illustration is part of my personal project called "Sketch daily for 30 minutes only". It is an architectonic icon in Spain and well visited always. The entire fortress is made up of red clay and was built by Moorish who was a ruler in Southern Spain. The gardens are also vibrant and refreshing.
