Capital of the Alhambra of Granada.
In 1237 Granada was elected capital of the Nasrid kingdom or Nasri and a year later began the construction of the Palatine city of the Alhambra. This palatial ensemble is composed of two very different parts: the Palace of the Generalife (built in the 13th century but rebuilt in 1319) and the Alhambra itself. The latter rose on a reddish hill which gave its name to the fortress. First there was built a fortified enclosure or Alcazaba and later, during the 14th century, the rest of the palace with its most significant parts: room of Comares, patio of the lions, patio of the Arrayanes, the Mexuar, the Throne Room, the Royal bath, etc. Among the ornamental elements are the capitals of almost cubic shapes in which two models are combined: one with Acanthus and ataurique leaves and another with muqarnas decoration.
