See slide lecture booklet - Slide # 21. From the parapets of the Alhambra, one looks up across a deep ravine to the white towers of the "Generalife", the summer palace of sultans. Translated, this becomes a "lofty gardens", and they are truly the high spot of spain for horticultural enthusiasts. This palace and gardens were restored in 1319 by King Ismail and are the oldest remaining Moorish gardens in Spain.
