The Fountain of Health is located on the banks of the River Darro whose waters were believed to have healing powers. Traditional healing (folk healers) coexisted with learned medicine during the Nasrid period. Both areas of knowledge had the same goal — disease prevention through hygiene and infection control by isolation. Medicine was one the most developed sciences at that time, and among the most remarkable authors: Ibn al-Khatib, Ahmad ibn-Jatima, Muhammad Al-Saquri. Their works do not only show the significant progress in this area—especially in epidemic prevention—but also the importance of didactic material for medical education. In this scenario, the Madrasah of Granada was the only publicly-run cultural center in the Iberian Peninsula.

Existing written sources indicate a taste for jewelry during the al-Andalus period. Women stood out because of their coquetry, even sometimes renting jewels for special occasions. Men, on the other hand, attached gold ornaments and gemstones to their belts and weapons. Most of those, however, serve not only as decorations, but also as protection as those jewels had a lot of symbolic value. In Granada, the use of amulets was also a very common practice—for instance among children, who used to wear sea glass bracelets against the Evil Eye. For inspiration, Tiendas de la Alhambra looked at some of those pieces of silver and filigree works to create an exclusive line of jewelry which will add a special touch to your outfit

Did you know that...?

Ibn al-Khatib was one of the most multifaceted figures of the Nasrid kingdom of Granada. Politician, chronicler, scientist, physician, and music theorist, he also carried out public duties during the most turbulent days in the history of Granada. He was renamed with the moniker Dhu al-‘Amrayn (He of the Two Lives). This was a reference to the fact that Ibn al-Khatib’s prolific writing was due in part to insomnia—working day and night, he accrued the equivalent of two lifetimes. He authored remarkable treatises on medicine, which encompassed botany, pharmacology, embryology, anatomy, chemistry, and dietetics. Ibn al-Khatib produced evidence of progress regarding many scientific fields during the Nasrid period.
