The Alhambra is an ancient Moorish citadel in Granada that is comprised of a group of palaces, forts and gardens. The Palace of the Lions is one of the most famous buildings in the Alhambra, and this fountain in the Court of the Lions is an iconic image in the historical city of Grenada. The construction of the Alhambra is influenced by Christian, Jewish and Muslim beliefs; in particular, the twelve lions on the fountain itself are meant to represent the twelve tribes of Israel.
