The Alhambra Palace is an archaeological palace and fortress built by the Arab Muslim king Abu Abdullah Muhammad I Muhammad bin Yusuf bin Muhammad bin Ahmed bin Nasr bin al-Ahmar between 1238-1273 in the Kingdom of Granada during the second half of the tenth century AD. It is now one of the most important tourist attractions in Spain and is located 267 miles (430 km) south of Madrid. The beginning of the construction of the Alhambra Palace dates back to the fourth century AH, corresponding to the tenth century AD, and some parts of it date back to the seventh century AH corresponding to the thirteenth century AD. It took more than 150 years to build. Among the features of Islamic architecture evident in the palace buildings: The use of delicate decorative elements in geometric arrangements such as carpets, writing Qur’an verses and supplications, and even some praises and descriptions from the poets' systems such as Ibn Zamrak, surrounded by decorations of colored stucco that cover the walls, and colored faience tiles with geometric patterns that cover the lower parts of the walls. In 2007, the Alhambra was named one of Spain's twelve treasures in a referendum in which more than 9,000 people voted.
