Passing through the Mexuar Gate of the Alhambra, we enter the Patio de los Arrayanes, a representative courtyard of the Nasrid Alcazar in Granada. At the end of the courtyard stands the Hall and Tower of Comares, a magnificent space adorned with marble floors, colorful tiled mosaics, intricate plasterwork, and elaborate wooden ceilings depicting Eden’s gardens. This remarkable example of Nasrid art dates back to the reigns of Yusuf I and Muhammad V. The Tower of Comares, the largest tower in the Alhambra complex, witnessed historic events such as the surrender of Granada to the Christians in 1492 and the signing of the pact between Columbus and the Catholic Monarchs for the conquest of America. The rectangular Patio de los Arrayanes, with its central myrtle-filled pond, boasts smooth marble columns, horseshoe arches, and authentic inscriptions. Adjacent to it is the Patio de la Reja, where Queen Joanna the Mad was said to call out for her deceased husband, Philip the Handsome, from its latticed window.
