Valuable Alhambra paintings are recovered

If you are coming to Granada, you will be probably interested in visiting the Alhambra. Shine Hotels offers an accomodation with views of the monument. You will find us in the Albaicín neighbourhood; one of the most popular neighbourhoods in the city center, and, just like us, located right in front of the Nasrid city.

After ten years of hard work and an investition of more than three million euro, the recovery of the paintings on leather of the three vaults in the Sala de los Reyes (which are considered unique due to their high cultural and historical value), has come to an end. The technique used to recover them, and also their figurative representation makes them unique pieces of art.

By the moment, we do not know what these impressive paintings represent. They show different fictional landscapes: cavalry, hunt and court society, but also the representation of a meeting, where ten illustrious figures (sultans from the Nasrid court) are put together.

Thanks to this hard work, the paintings of the three vaults have been succesfully recovered, and every of them is approximately fifteen square meters. They are placed in the Sala de los Reyes, in the famous Patio de los Leones. It is a remarkable space inside the Alhambra, built during the reign of Muhammad V in the 14th century.

Shine Albayzin, as an accomodation with views of the Alhambra, is an experience for all the senses. The hotel was built by using the space of an ancient major house from the 16th century located in Carrera del Darro, one of the most typical and emblematic streets of the city.
