Granada at the beginning of the 20th century lived times of cultural and artistical splendour which marked a turning point in the intellectual thought of the time. Founded in 1885, the Centro Artístico, Literario y Científico (CALC) dominated the picture while promoting the popular culture and fine art of Granada. The avant-garde, and the leading intellectuals such as Manuel de Falla, Federico Garcia Lorca, and Angel Barrios passed through this institution. Granada-born composer, Angel Barrios witnessed this true "golden age" in musical culture. Driven by the CALC and the composer himself, the city of Granada started to host many events: the 1st Edition of Deep Song Contest (1922); the Andalusian Song and Gipsy Artistic Dance; the Palace of Charles V Music Festival— which was the previous version of the International Festival of Music and Dance in Granada. The latter is still onje of the most remarkable festivals of today's national and international music scene. This summer the 65th edition of the festival is to be held from June 17 to July 8.

Due to the revaluation of medieval military architecture done by the travellers in the 19th century, the citadel of the Alhambra ceased to be a stark military enclosure to become an evocation of a chivalric past which fits perfectly with the romantic idea of the sublime. Especially at night, those travellers would walk through the Alhambra when those kind of feelings arose in them. The ruins of the towers and the shadowy walls were a clear example of the idea of obscurity, causing them a ghostly vision of past battles. Today, visiting the Alhambra at night still attracts thousands of visitors who can enjoy this magical image of the Moorish fortress.

The ochre yellow toned decoration of the Alhambra is very different from the way it was originally. Some sources claim the red appearance explains the derivation of its name in Arabic (al-Hamrá, the red one). Actually, the plasterworks and muqarnas have not preserved remains of their red, blue, golden and black polychrome paintings. As seen, the art of al-Andalus gave much importance to colour in space, and the impressions it causes to whoever walks around the Alhambra. You can read about this many other aspects of the architecture of the Alhambra in the DELUXE EDITION of the book "Alhambra of Granada" which is translated in six languages.
