The Alhambra: History of my family and the fascinating life of María, the last inhabitant

The Alhambra is the jewel of Granada, on top of the hill that the Arabs called Monte de la al-Sabika, the red city due to the color of its earth, on the banks of the Darro river in front of the Albaicín neighborhood and the mountains from Sierra Nevada.

A private visit to the Alhambra and Generalife, to experience it exclusively, knowing its history and that of the life of the last inhabitant in the Partal.

The Alhambra is part of my family’s life. «The last Resident» in the Partal de La Alhambra, has been «María Victoria» my great-aunt and where my mother, María Victoria, along with my great-aunt and my great-uncle Manuel (born in the Alhambra) lived for a few years, having us the privilege of enjoying our summers as little ones at her house. María de la Mezquita lived in what was the house of the Squire of the Count of Tendilla, Estacio de Bracamonte, next to the small oratory.
