The Alhambra Wood is filled with Natural Treasures of the World

Visitors to the monument will be able to view the “Natural Treasures of the World” declared World Natural Heritage Sites by UNESCO, through the viewfinder of some of the best photographers in the world in an open-air exhibition

The Alhambra Wood will be offering a new photographic vision this autumn.  Visitors to the monument will be able to view the “Natural Treasures of the World” declared World Natural Heritage Sites by UNESCO, through the viewfinder of some of the best photographers in the world in an open-air exhibition, which like every year is sponsored by the AXA foundation and organized by Lunwerg in collaboration with the Council of the Alhambra and the Generalife, and will be on display until the 15th November.
The exhibition contains a total of 77 images of great natural wonders ranging from the Sierra Nevada Natural Park, the Grand Canyon of Colorado and the Galapagos Islands, passing through the glaciers of Argentina and the highest summits of Nepal. The curator of the exhibition is the naturalist, Joaquín Aráujo.

The Director of the Council of the Alhambra and Generalife, María del Mar Villafranca, said that this annual encounter with photography “invites us to take stock of the need to conserve and take care of this legacy so that we can pass it on to future generations”.
For Josep Alfonso, the Head of the AXA Foundation, “these exhibitions are an annual date in the diary for all lovers of nature, and a wake-up call about the importance of protecting and preserving the biodiversity of the planet. The future of these natural wonders lies in our hands. It’s up to us to ensure that they survive”.
For his part, the curator of Natural Treasures of the World, Joaquín Aráujo, said that “landscapes are like museums in which we can feel the past pulsating, where most things or everything are in the same place as they were millennia ago or even thousands of millennia ago. This exhibition is a journey through the most complete selection of what remains unspoiled in our planet, an absolutely representative repertoire of climates, landscapes and living communities of the continents and their spontaneous inhabitants”.
The Sierra Nevada Natural Park, the Grand Canyon of Colorado, Mount Teide, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and the rainforests of Amazonia are just some of the spaces protected by the UNESCO, which form part of a selection of spectacular landscapes which have earned special recognition from the United Nations as World Natural Heritage Sites. The list is made up of 188 places all over the world with an exceptional universal value.
On this question, Aráujo stated that “we will be travelling from the depths of the sea to the best preserved jungles, from the top of the world to the most extreme deserts and of course from the closest to home to the remotest, far-flung destination.”
