The Alhambra of Granada
Nisrad Palace and Partal Palace
The last part of the most famous Islamic Architecture in Spain, is the Nasrid Palace and the Partal Palace.
Enjoy, the dripped ceilings, the calming water and the mystery of these spaces.
Entrance to the Hall of the Mexuar
Hall of the Mexuar
Court of the Gilded Room
The space where meetings where held.
Ceiling Gilded Room
Court of the Myrtles
Where the Nasrid did their best to tame water, the water is supposed to have an intricate construction to be completely quiet and reflect the buildings. I therefore thought it was quite awkward that fishes had been added to it.
Entrance ceiling, Comares Room
Court of the Lions
Hall of the two sisters
Supposedly named after two imprisoned sisters who is said to die of desire after seeing a couple secretely making love in the nearby garden.
In the Hall of the Abencerrajes there is also another myth. The Abencerraje massacre, the leader was supposed to be smitten by the beautiful Zorraja, the Kings favorite. This ended in a massacre and the red bloodstains are said to be still there. Later the episode has been thought of as the downfall of Grenada.
Jardin de Lindaraja
Alhambra's oldest castle, with what is left of it and it's gorgeous less secluded garden.
What better way to end this wonderful trip, than to see a couple in love?
With this I will end my vacation and go back to the Contemporary world in London for a while.
See you next week:)
