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.
