Generalife GardensHistory and Culture
A recreation house of the sultans of Granada, surrounded by orchards and gardens, these newly created, together with the amphitheater at the entrance, which hosts every year some of the shows of the Music and Dance Festival.
The name, from a dubious source, seems to come from the Arabic Yanat-al-Arif or Garden of the Architect strong>, in a clear poetic-religious symbolism that alludes to God, Allah, as architect, creator of the Universe. It is worth going up to the Water Ladder, especially in summer, to let out the cold clear water running through the handrails.
