Description :

In this video we learn about the architectural features of the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain. I'll share some travel tips too!

We'll examine the palace's Islamic design features, including vegetal, calligraphy and geometric patterns. This includes the colorful tile work that forms tessellations on the walls. These designs inspired MC Escher, to explore tessellations. Also, we will learn about the stalactite and honeycomb (Mocarabes and Muqarnas) that adorn the ceilings and archways.
