Description

242- Muqarnas or stalactite vaulting in the Mocarabes court leading into the Court of the Lions. The ceiling of this hall was blown up in 1590 when the French were using it as a storage room for gunpowder. The word ‘mocarabes’ refers to the kind of muqarnas/stalactite vaulting applied especially in al-Andalus. For a general account of the Alhambra, see slide B49.185.
