The Alhambra vases
Patronato de la Alhambra y Generalife is proud to present a series of guided themed tours of the Museum of the Alhambra. On the third and fourth Sunday of the month, from noon onwards, as part of a free programme, voluntary guides from the Museum of the Alhambra will take a close look at Hispano-Islamic culture, through the museum’s collections.
In April, Clemente Franco will analyse the Alhambra vases.
In May, Ana Navarro will give a detailed run down of the work of the muhtasib, or supervisor, of the souk. The Nasrid influence on modern or contemporary painting, guided by Lourdes Ruíz, will be a high point of the month of June.
Themed visits for August and September will deal with Nasrid fashion, clothing and textiles, and science and the importance of water.
The volunteer-guided visits of the Museum of the Alhambra for 2012 will end up with Nasrid food, religion and economy, in October, the personal adornments and coinage of the Hispano-Islamic population in November, and Hispano-Islamic gardens, in December.
