Course, ‘From Madinat Ilbira to Madinat Garnata: architecture, art and urbanism of the Islamic Granada’
The Alhambra will receive, from January 29 to February 20, the course, ‘De Madinat Ilbira a Madinat Garnata: arquitectura, arte y urbanismo de la Granada islámica’ (‘From Madinat Ilbira to Madinat Garnata: architecture, art and urbanism of the Islamic Granada’). Experts of diverse areas of knowledge will debate over this period of history of the city, from the first settlement in Sierra Elvira up to the movement and consolidation in the current enclave. The conferences complement each other with visits to the places exposed in the topics. The chair Al-Babtain of Arabic Studies, assigned to the Vicerrectorado de Relaciones Internacionales (Vicerectorship of International Relations) of the University of Granada, organizes the event.
During the presentation, the principal of the Monument of the Alhambra and the Generalife, María del Mar Villafranca, has stood out the importance of the course, since it discovers his participants, “the keys for the compression of the cultural values of the Alhambra”. In addition, she has praised the methodological orientation of the course, based on the Institución Libre de Enseñanza (Free Institution of Education).
