“The meadow was a bright face, the shadow was black hair, and the water a mouth full of gleaming teeth”. In these verses, Ibn Khafaja uses the garden —the meadow— as a source of inspiration for poets and artist in the Al-Andalus.

With its roots in Persian tradition, the gardens of Al-Andalus were conceived as the embodiment of the world divided into four elements: earth, water, air, and fire. In Islamic tradition, it represents a symbolic oasis which leads to divinity, and captivates the senses. The sound of water, the light and shade, the fruits in the trees, and the scent of the flowers are some of the elements you will enjoy at the gardens of the Alhambra.

Take advantage of the good weather, and don´t miss it!

Did know you that..?

The term “taracea” derives from the Arabic “tar’sia” meaning “inlay technique”. This centuries-old form of decoration was introduced to the Spanish by Arabic peoples. This technique consists of the insertion of fine quality hardwoods in different colours with bones, nacre, and ivory. These elements combine to create geometric patterns for decorative effects—just like in the tileworks of the Alhambra. Check out our catalogue of products with traditional and modern designs.
