Under the title “The Granada Zirí and the Berber universe”, the exhibition reveals the Berber people and the profound influence they exercised in the Iberian Peninsula after their arrival in al-Andalus (the Arabic name given to those parts of the Iberian Peninsula governed by Muslims, or Moors, at various times in the period between 711 and 1492).

The Alhambra is an ancient palace, fortress and citadel located in Granada, Spain. The eighth-century-old site was named for the reddish walls and towers that surrounded the citadel “al-qal’a al-hamra” in Arabic means red fort or castle.
