Description

211- The famous fountain in the Court of the Lions. The dating of the stone lions has been disputed. Robert Irwin thinks they date from the 14th century, whereas most guide books prefer a date in the 11th century. The jet fountains are also most probably anachronistic—gentler flowing water is more plausible. Finally, the courtyard was once covered with white marble, and is so today after renovations in 2012. For a full account of this court, see B49.210. For an account of the Alhambra, see slide B49.185.
