The Alhambra in Granada is one of the most beautiful examples of Islamic architecture. The Nasrid family ruled the Emirate up until the fall of Granada in 1492 and continuously expanded the Alhambra into a complex citadel. Beside the ruler’s throne and the private chambers, it also includes the mosque, government and Administration buildings as well as enchanting courtyards and gardens. The Courtyard of the Lions (Patio de los Leones) impressively shows the typical Nasrid style, abundancy of decorative elements: pillars, arches, arabesques, inscriptions and the pointed stalactite alcoves named Muqarnas. With good reason the poet Ibn Zamrak’s inscription on the fountain’s edge reads: “Blessed is the eye that sees this garden of beauty”.
