The Alhambra (/ælˈhæmbrə/; Spanish: [aˈlambɾa]; Arabic: الْحَمْرَاء‎‎... More > [ʔælħæmˈɾˠɑːʔ], Al-Ḥamrā, lit. "The Red One"),[Note 1][Note 2] the complete Arabic form of which was Calat Alhamra,[Note 3] is a palace and fortress complex located in Granada, Andalusia, Spain. It was originally constructed as a small fortress in AD 889 on the remains of Roman fortifications and then largely ignored until its ruins were renovated and rebuilt in the mid-13th century by the Moorish emir Mohammed ben Al-Ahmar of the Emirate of Granada, who built its current palace and walls. It was converted into a royal palace in 1333 by Yusuf I, Sultan of Granada.

A Mathematician's Guide to the Alhambra By John Jaworski
eBook (ePub): $3.05
This highly-illustrated volume is the text that you need to have in front of you as you explore the rich Moorish tiling patterns that decorate the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain. It tells you... More > where to look, and what you are looking at. It tackles the claim that all of the 17 possible tilings are to be found in the Alhambra (the answer is 'yes', 'no' and 'maybe'!). And it explains enough of the mathematics behind symmetry to leave you with an understanding of what is going on, without swamping you in technical details. It's an essential guide if you are visiting the Alhambra (whether or not you are a mathematician), but it also is an entertaining read even if you haven't left home! WARNING: the explanations make extensive use of colour in the illustrations; you will enjoy only a limited experience if you use this e-book on a black-and-white device.< Less
The Alhambra Court in the Crystal Palace By Owen Jones
Paperback: $20.57
Prints in 3-5 business days
After the Great Exhibition in 1851, the famous Crystal Palace was dismantled, then moved to Sydenham. The glasshouse was expanded and set within a beautiful 200 acre, fountain-filled pleasure park.... More > It re-opened in 1854. Education and entertainment combined at Crystal Palace. The Crystal Palace Company published a series of guides – official handbooks – describing the park’s themed courts, special features, and sculpture galleries. These helped visitors interpret key features. They also provided background information. The effect was to add an air of authenticity to the visitor’s experience and to justify the intricate attention to detail (and its expense). More than a dozen guides were produced. Facsimile of 1854 original edition. Complete. This guide also includes Pasqual De Gayangos, “An Historical Notice of the Kings of Granada, From the Conquest of that City by the Arabs to the Expulsion of the Moors,” and Anonymous, “The Flight from Granada”.
