The palatine city of the Alhambra is from muslim origin and became the official residence of the Nasrid Royal family. The Moorish kingdom of Granada was the last Islamic kingdom in the Iberian peninsula after the conquest of the Catholic Kings. Apparently, from outside, due to the austerity of the building, it could be thought of the Alhambra as another Moorish fortress. Nevertheless, it accumulate the greater level of detail, decoration and, simply, perfection never ever reached in the Islamic world.
The Alhambra is a one of a kind example of how light and water offer great decorative effects in the architecture art. A carefully election of the fabric make the ornamentation changing along the day because of the incidence angle of the light. Water works as a mirror, reflecting the buildings and the decorative elements, contributing to create a feeling of peace all over the place. Besides, in combination with light, make illusory compositions and soften the horizontal architecture, as you can see in the Patio of the Myrtles.
