Museum of the Alhambra

Interesting
Only Hispano-Moorish works of art are collected here (ceramics, sculpted wood articles, tiled panels and with alicatados, plasterwork, cloth, etc.) which show the prowess of the artists and the craftsmen of that period. Notice the Pila de Almanzor, a wash basin decorated with lions and stags, the blue amphora and the gazelle amphora, 14C masterpieces of detailed work as well as small ceramic curios depicting animals or replicas of domestic animals.
