The palace of the Lions is the most famous nasrid palace of the Alhambra thanks to its courtyard and fountain which has become kind of a landmark of Granada worldwide. This palace was the focal point of the sultan's private dwellings. From the original entrance, the beauty of this patio progressively revelaed itself to the visitor. In either direction that he chose to take around the cloister, he found himself walking through a forest of gilded pillars, like gold fringes of lace hanging from the sky. "Ever since the Egyptian lotus capitals, never have columns been crowned more elegantly" (Oleg Grabar)
