About this deal

His most significant contribution to the Alhambra was the construction of the Palace of the Lions to the east of the Comares Palace in an area previously occupied by gardens. It was first built as part of the larger complex begun by Isma'il I which included the Comares Palace.

His reign marked the beginning of the "classical" period of Nasrid architecture, during which many major monuments in the Alhambra were begun and decorative styles were consolidated. The room is also covered by a unique vault ceiling consisting of a wooden lattice shaped into an interlacing geometric motif and filled with pieces of coloured glass.O Allah, I ask You for the goodness of this day, 2 its victory, its help, its light, its blessings, and its guidance. Geometric patterns, vegetal motifs, and Arabic inscriptions were the main types of decorative motifs. In 1940 a new Council of the Alhambra was created to oversee the site, which has remained in charge ever since. Several towers along this northern wall were converted into small palatial residences during the Nasrid period, including the Torre de los Picos ('Tower of the Pointed Battlements' [187]), the Torre de la Cautiva ('Tower of the Captive'), and the Torre de las Infantas ('Tower of the Princesses').

It extends from west-northwest to east-southeast and covers an area of about 142,000m 2 (1,530,000sqft) or 35 acres.It is covered by an elaborate muqarnas vault ceiling, featuring a 16-sided lantern cupola in the shape of an eight-pointed star, possibly symbolizing the celestial heaven. the second Count of Tendilla, was present in Ferdinand II's entourage when Muhammad XII surrendered the keys to the Alhambra and he became the Alhambra's first Spanish governor.

Inside the enclosure of the inner fortress was a residential district that housed the elite guards of the Alhambra.These invocations will be above all a means for the Muslim to get closer to Allah by remembering Him regularly, but also a rampart and support in all aspects of his life. At the beginning of the 11th century, the region of Granada was dominated by the Zirids, a Sanhaja Berber group and offshoot of the Zirids who ruled parts of North Africa.
