    Patio de los Arrayanes

    October 31, 2015 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Fast ganz alleine stehen wir im Myrtenhof, dem zentralen Innenhof des repräsentativen Teil des Palastes.
    Staunend bummeln wir durch die Räume. Die Dekoration besteht größtenteils aus Holz und Gips, der Bau war also nicht für die Ewigkeit gedacht, sondern konnte schnell umdekoriert werden.

    Palacios Nazaries - Moorish Royal Palace

    January 20, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    The Alhambra included an unfinished palace and the royal gardens but the main attraction is the Palacios Nazarenes. The palace was painted in bright colours as suggested in the Quran....red (blood), blue (heaven), green (oasis), and gold (wealth). There were many inscriptions on the walls, many referring to Allah. There is water everywhere in fountains and ponds as water was the purest symbol of life to the moors. The interior is amazing and I could imagine sultans with hookah pipes lounging on pillows on Persian carpets.Read more

    The Alhambra - Nasrid Palaces

    November 28, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Visited Alhambra today - photos and text to follow in three parts.

    Part One: Palacios Nazares

    After a medium walk uphill to the Alhambra complex, we picked up audioguides and lined up for our 11.30 time slot to see the Palaces. Lots of people inside (there's a limit per half hour), so there it was a bit crowded but not too bad.

    Inside the palaces were quite nice - a lot of very fine and detailed decoration on the walls. Audioguide was moderately interesting for providing some more context. Quite a few walls had mosaics and often arabic inscriptions - the audioguide read some of these out which were pretty odd taken out of context.

    Some interesting arches and ceilings, some quite ornate with domes and odd but pretty shapes. Overall quite enjoyable.
