A complex of palaces that shimmers like silver under the moon and stars, yet it glows like copper when the sun rises. What fascinating events and conversations could those richly embellished walls, arches and columns have been silent witnesses to? Poets have described the Alhambra as a ruby on the temples of the city of Granada. In the Arabic tongue, alqala al hamra means the red palace. Red is certainly the colour that the Alhambra takes on at its most intense during sunrise and sunset.
