COMUNICACIÓN Y PRENSA
Few places in the world have raised such fascination as the Alhambra in Granada. From its construction to its conquest, from its recovery up to the public appreciation as a unique monument, the Alhambra Complex has been an object of praise, admiration and inspiration and a subject of study.
Cristina Viñes Millet has recovered the most beautiful, pertinent and singular opinions that Romantic travelers have written after their visit to the Alhambra. The authoress has not only compiled the texts, but she has also put them into the historical context. The reader will have the sensation of accompanying those travelers who from the middle of the 18th century up to now felt Alhambra´s historical value and its weight of beauty.
visit to the Alhambra, with a preface by José-Carlos Mainer, invites to love the Alhambra, guided by the words of sensitive observers whose texts have today an amazing validity.
Cristina Viñes Millet is Chair Professor of Contemporary History at the Faculty of Political Sciences and Sociology, at which she has been the vice dean in two of its directing groups. Viñes formed part of the team that designed the visit to the Alhambra directed by the architect José Seguí Pérez. This Plan was promoted by the Andalusian government, with the collaboration of Granada´s City Council, with the aim of preserving and to safeguarding the architectural, town-planning and environmental aspects of the monument and its surroundings.
