You'll pass through Patio de los Leones in the heart of the harem section, on your tour of the Alhambra. The Oriental atmosphere created by the architects, moved the American writer, Washington Irving, to compose lofty, romantic prose about it during his visit in 1826. It was built for Sultan Muhammed V in 1378, with a central fountain supported by 12 tame-looking lions. Ibn Zamrak's poem, engraved on the fountain, praises the Sultan and this beautiful palace garden. It's surrounded by a gallery with 124 marble columns, that overlooks three of the most attractive rooms in the complex.
