One of the best world school educational ideas to do with kids is to read related books before hand to prepare them and dress in the traditional clothes from that time. Mozart loved being an ancient Moorish princess! The Arab baths there are also divine. Don't forget to see it at night and sunset as well as the day time.
The name Alhambra means “red castle” because in some lights the towers
take on a golden reddish hue. It dates back to the ninth century and is a
fortress (alcazaba), a palace (alcazar) and a small city (medina).
Moorish poets described it accurately as “a pearl set in emeralds” and
it is considered a masterpiece of world architecture.
My favorite part of the Alhambra were the gardens, which like much of
the entire complex, were inspired to duplicate heaven on earth. There
were awe-inspiring views to the Alhambra, the white Albaicin old moorish
section of Granada and the snow capped mountains, plus lots of water
elements,greenery and flowers.
