In Spain - - the Alhambra of Granda, composition and cinematography by Mr. R. Alexandre. Here was the ancient acropolis of Granada at the foot of the Sierra Nevada. The Alhambra was built in Part in the 14th century by the Moor kings Yusuf and Muhammad V. Masses of greenery surrounded by walls and towers. The court of myrtles where once across welling waters Moorish kings paraded. This great triumphal arch that surrounds the doorstep of the hall of the ambassadors is unparalleled throughout the Alhambra. The Court of the Lions, the heart and marvel of this palace. The most precious monument of Arab art in Spain, it was built in 1377. Arabic inscriptions raised on the walls of the basin. "Look at the water and look at the basin, you cannot tell which is immobile water and which is trickling marble." "O you who looks at the lions fixed to their place, note that they only need to be alive to be perfect." Nevertheless nothing looks less like lions. The palace of the Alhambra at twilight. After 5 centuries the memory of the Moors is still vibrant in Granada. See, No. 658, Granada.
