The Court of the Lions and the Court of la Acequia

Posted by

I will focus mainly on the aesthetic qualities and functions of one of the gardens at the Alhambra in Granada, Spain – the Court of the Lions. In addition, I would like to compare another Islamic garden of Granada to the one at the Alhambra, specifically the Court of la Acequia (Court of the Water Channel) that is a neighbor of the Alhambra in the Generalife palace.

Me centraré en las cualidades estéticas y funciones de uno de los jardines de la Alhambra en Granada, España – el Patio de los Leones. Además, me gustaría comparar otro jardín islámico de Granada a la de la Alhambra, el Tribunal de la Acequia (Tribunal de la Canal del Agua) que es un vecino de la Alhambra, en el palacio del Generalife.
