The Alhambra is a palace constructed by the Moors in the 14th century in the province of Granada, which is located in Andalusia, Spain. The Alhambra is renowned for its beauty and architecture.
“The presentation will explore the mystery and allure of the Alhambra, an architectural treasure hailing back to the Middle Ages that fascinated American writer Washington Irving as well as Spanish composer Isaac Albéniz,” Professor Clark said. “The artistry of each of these men and many others was impacted when they visited this magical place in Granada, Spain. Today, tourists can experience that same mystique as they wander the grounds of the Alhambra.
