Most of the decorative work was just the same as you see in Morocco- amazing tiles, plaster work and mouchrabieh screens. In classic Islamic style there is an abundant use of water in the forms of still, rectalinear pools, gurgling rills and scalloped edged, marble bowls.
Within the walls of L'Alhambra the planting is minimal, mosty just tree planting for shade, wheras at the adjacent Generalife, there is more emphasis on plants. Hedging, roses, pergolas, wisteria and orange trees. Here the pebble mosaics change pattern constantly, and are a dominant feature of the gardens.
L'Alhambra overlooks Granada, and there are amazing views over the city. Also from the outside it makes an impressive feature in the landscape.
It was all just so inspirational. Not just the design, but the complexity of craftsmanship, which is just so intricate....I do not think it could be easily replicated today.
I highly recommend a visit to this amazing place.
