The Alhambra


          It was written on its ancient walls:

     " I am a garden adorned by beauty:
my being will know whether you look at my beauty.
Oh, Mohammed, my king, I try to equal
the noblest thing that has ever existed or will ever exist.
Sublime work of art, fate wants me to outshine every other moment in history.
How much delight for the eyes!
The noble one renews his desires here.
The Pleiads serve as his amulet;
the breeze defends it with its magic.
A gleaming vault shines in a unique way,
with apparent and hidden beauties.
The hand of a devoted to Gemini;
and the Moon comes to converse with her.
The stars wish to rest there,
and not turn around the celestial wheel,
and they wish to await submissively in both courtyards,
and serve tenaciously like slaves:
Isn't it marvelous that the stars miss it
and go beyond the marked limit,
in order to readily serve my master,
for those who serve the Glorious one reach the glory...."

La Alhambra de Granada desconocida: los últimos inquilinos (1991) - 15:11

El reportaje "La Alhambra desconocida" analiza el Conjunto Histórico en 1991, cuando en el interior del recinto arrendatarios cultivaban la huerta, y los últimos inquilinos, con demanda de desahucio, esperaban ser desalojados por la construcción del nuevo acceso sur al Monumento.
Se incluyen los testimonios de María Victoria (vecina de la Alhambra), de los arqueólogos Antonio Malpica y Jesús Bermúdez, de los arabistas Emilio Santiago y Diego Cabanelas, de Mateo Revilla (presidente Patronato de la Alhambra) y Carmelo Jiménez (vigilante).
