Alhambra - Alcazar, Granada: 34 reviews and 63 photos
The lion's court yard (Patio de los Leones) is a masterpiece of moorish style of architecture. Lion's court yard is the former center of sultan's rooms of rest. It is decorated with 124 columns similar to palm trees. Twelve lions symbolize signs on the Zodiac.
It causes admiration of the cosiness and a graceful ornament. The fountain with lions certainly appeared later. The interdiction of islam on the image of people and animals is known. Therefore mixture of styles certainly takes place.
