The royal throne is thought to have been placed in the Salon of the Ambassadors in the Casa Real (Royal House) at the Alhambra, facing the Court of the Pool - through intricately carved archways.
The 7 arches of the northern portico extend from columns with stylized capitals of stalactites, while the walls feature poetic inscriptions. Their image reflects in the still mirror like pool - the main feature in the Court of the Myrtles.
The Northern portico with the Tower of Comares in the background, at the Court of the Myrtles (Patio de los Arrayanes), aka Court of the Pool (Patio de la Alberca), The Royal House (Casa Real), The Alhambra (La Alhambra) - designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, City of Granada, Province of Granada, Andalusia (Andalucia), Spain, Europe.
I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III, aperture of f/7.1, exposure time of 1/100 sec. on ISO 100, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 35mm.
