Photo: Details Archway Spandrels Hall Boat Royal House Alhambra Granada Andalusia Spain

Intricate and elaborate details of the archway and spandrels are found at one of the entrances of the Hall of the Boat in The Royal House of The Alhambra, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the City of Granada in Andalusia, Spain.

The Hall of the Boat, the Sala de la Barca, is a grand room in The Royal House, the Casa Real, in The Alhambra in the City of Granada. It is a very decorative room with many unique and fantastic details, such as the ones around this arch here at one of the many entrances to the Hall.

The Alhambra is now a tourist destination and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, but it was built as a palace and a fortress for the Moorish rulers in Granada in southern Spain. It was built during the 14th century and is located on a hill, which makes it an ideal location for a fortress as it can see attackers coming from far away and it's easier to defend itself.

The palace was built by the Moorish people and the influences of the Islamic architecture can be seen clearly around the archway. ... continue below the picture...

... The way that the archway is shaped as well, with a point at the top and not a round arch, is also a prominent example of Islamic architecture.

Tourists flock here every year to see this palace, which is one of the best examples of Islamic architecture from the 14th century, and the details around the arches could be something that is overlooked because there is so much else to see. But to take a moment to just look at how long this must have taken is worth it to see how much care was taken to build this grand fortress.
