    Granada

    Last Muslim stronghold in western Europe and last remnant of al-Andalus (Muslim Spain). Ruled by Nasrid dynasty, 1230 – 1492 . Center of export trade in ceramics, silks, weapons, and porcelain. Home of Alhambra Palace, one of the greatest achievements of Islamic urban art. Fell to Spain's Christian rulers, Isabella and Ferdinand , in 1492 , marking the end of Muslim rule in western Europe and the end of the Muslim population in Spain (Christian pressure on the Muslim population in Spain led to mass Muslim emigration to North Africa). Remains a powerful symbol in the collective Muslim memory of Western aggression.
