It was constructed as a small, simple yet intimate summer palace surrounded by the shady garden. Generalife as know as the Garden of Architect. I heard many people said that Generalife is the finest garden in the whole of Europe. All gardens offer new color and a different perspective with the changing seasons and this is particularly true in the Generalife. Evening visits are very enjoyable. It brings the delights of the garden to a wider public. Previously, in 13th century only filled with gardens and green meadows. During the period of time it changed into a very beautiful place filled with roses and lilies, and also a long pond or water channel.
