About this title:
Synopsis:
The Alhambra inspires and enchants like no other site. With its fascinating history, romantic locale, intricately decorated rooms, and numerous courtyards and fountains, this endlessly alluring palace-city has captivated visitors since the 13th century. In this book, Michael Jacobs takes a fresh look at the Alhambra and the potent mythology that has grown up around it. He details the history of this spectacular monument — the ruling families who lived in the palaces, the capturing and recapturing of the region, and the sometimes-fanciful tales that surround the Alhambra. Evocative photographs by Francisco Fernández take readers on a virtual journey through the various palaces, government and military buildings, mosques, baths, courtyards, and beautiful ancient gardens that make up this mythical place. A final chapter assesses the literature, art, and architecture the Alhambra has inspired.
