Description

209- One of the seven-arched porticoes in the Court of the Myrtles within the Comares Palace, Alhambra. A shallow pool of water runs the length of the courtyard, flanked by myrtle bushes (hence the name “Court of the Myrtles”). Adjoining the courtyard are a number of rooms which functioned as the rooms of the King’s wives. At the ends are elaborate seven-arched porticoes supported by slender columns. For a general account of the Alhambra, see slide B49.185.
