    the moorish caliphate rulers who were later expelled in the reconquista which ended with king ferdinand and isabela's united rule of a completely free spanish peninsula around 1490!!el cid campeador was one one the main consolidating figures who helped unify moorish spaniards and spanish royal forces under king alphonso and his brother who for a time ruled jointly from castile and leon!!the alhambra is every bit the stern fortress on the outside faces but a demi-eden of gardens and fountains within,beautiful colonnades and ornate arabesque arches and bedazzling tilework!!statuary of guardian creatures to protect it's serenity!!
