CONSERVATION AND MAINTENANCE WORKSHOPS
The Alhambra workshops appeared from the need for conservation and physical restoration of the buildings.
The daily maintenance of the Alhambra’s water system is one of the jobs of a team who keep a close watch on and take care of the water supply and flow levels, which must be exact and constant.
Lighting up the Alhambra and the Generalife requires elaborate electrical installations and equipment of proven quality, as electric light is a tool that shapes and highlights the architectural treasures hidden behind the walls of the monument and allows people to visit us at night.
The materials used in the buildings at the Alhambra, such as rammed-earth, lime concrete, brick, plaster, lime, stone and wood, are for the most part quite humble and need constant care and maintenance. The staff responsible for the daily care of these materials have been trained in direct contact with them and have received instruction in traditional building techniques.
