Alhambra, the complete form of which was Calat Alhambra ('the red fortress'), is a palace and fortress complex located in Granada, Andalusia, Spain. It was constructed during the mid 14th century by the Berber rulers of the Emirate of Granada in al-Andalus, occupying the top of the hill of the Assabica on the south-eastern border of the city of Granada. From the original 9th century citadel, through the 14th century Muslim palaces, to the 16th century palace of Charles V; some buildings are at odd positioning to each other. The terrace or plateau where the Alhambra sits measures about 740 metres (2,430 ft) in length by 205 metres (670 ft) at its greatest width. It extends from west-northwest to east-southeast and covers an area of about 142,000 square metres (1,530,000 sq ft). The Alhambra's most westerly feature is the alcazaba (citadel), a strongly fortified position. The Alhambra is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Sierra Nevada (meaning 'snowy range' in Spanish) is a mountain range in Andalusia. It contains the highest point of continental Spain, Mulhacen, at 3478 m (11,411 ft.)
