During one night of the Granada War, Gonzalo de Cordoba—aka The Great Captain—was wounded, and fell from his horse. The attack was perpetrated by the Nasrid troops who ambushed Christian soldiers, and therefore the defeat of the Great Captain seemed imminent. Had it not been for a servant who let him use his horse at the last minute, Gonzalo would not have saved his life. As he rode away, Gonzalo witnessed how his rescuer was fatally wounded and put to death. Don Gonzalo excelled in warfare spending his military genius in the service of the Catholic Monarchs. Tactically, Gonzalo's war strategy was based on persuasion and the element of surprise. Although he did not employ heavy infantry when fighting in open-terrain, he became notorious for his actions, as well as his temper, thereby leading the way in military expertise for more than a hundread years after his death in Loja in 1515.

Children are eager to learn, explore and find out their individuality through fun & games. In fact, toys have been ever-present in the history of mankind since the first civilizations. During the Nasrid period, children not only built their own animal (zoomorphic) figures, but also realistic kitchen play toys or water bird whistles. Tiendas de la Alhambra always win younger visitors over with our games & toys.

The "saeta" is a form of Spanish religious song linked to Easter Week in Spain. About 100 years ago, Antonio Machado wrote: "Saetas are shot like arrows against the hardened hearts of the faithful". Highlights of the Holy Week in Spain are mainly from Maundy Thursday to Good Friday, except the procession of the Christ of the Gypsies on Wednesday. Here, gipsies sing the words of saetas dedicated to Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary as they walk through the maze of narrow streets of the emblematic neighbourhoods of the Albayzin and Sacromonte.
