   1492 was a very remarkable year in the history of Spain: the Capitulations of Santa Fe were signed which led to the Discovery of America by Columbus; the Royal Decree ordering the eviction of the Jews; Nebrija wrote the first veritable Grammar of Spanish; and the Catholic Monarchs finally took control of Granada.

Legend has it that King Ferdinand, after receiving the key to the city of Granada from Boabdil, handed the key over to Don Iñigo Lopez de Mendoza (1442-1515), 2nd Count of Tendilla and 1st Governor of the Alhambra. Since then, he would fulfill his duty with honour: to defend Granada and the King´s interests. After that, he became Captain General of Granada, a position which granted life tenure for the following two generations. Don iñigo Lopez de Mendoza played a vital military and political role as he controlled the frontiers of the realm, and the internal organization of Granada inhabited mainly by Moriscos.

All the correspondence he wrote during his stay in the Alhambra—about 5,000 letters full of references to his daily life—is a valuable source of information on that turbulant period in which he happened to live.

   In al-Andalus, meals should be served in three separate courses consisting of: soup or broth. Then, some meat (primarily pigeon, chicken, or lamb) seasoned with cilantro, almonds or fruits. Lastly, sugary desserts such as: date cakes & pastries, almonds or pine nuts, honey, and milk. Guests had to be ready to eat their fill in a banquet which was really a pleasure for the senses.

Tiendas de la Alhambra offers a selection of exclusive pieces for Christmas inspired by that era. Make your celebrations extra special with them... just like in a feast made for kings!
