Spain: Granada, the Alhambra
Fortunately, there are dreams that come true. Andalusia was one of them, and the Alhambra was its acme.
This masterpiece of Arabo-Andalusian architecture plunges us into the thousand and one nights palace
Here is that of the second enclosure
Where a king had a palace built
And here is the entrance of the last enclosure
hat treasure hides this fortress?
An invaluable jewel:
The Thousand and One Nights' Palace
Where the beautiful Shéhérazade
Will delight us with her beauty
Is it a mirage?
Or a reflection of paradise?
I'm in a dream:
The windows of the harem
And the door of desires!
Truly, this is paradise
For Master Masons
Where the shadow plays with the light
Like a woman behind her mystery veil
From a sun, he makes one thousand
Without diminishing its radiance
In my dream I walk there
Scheherazade on my arm
It is the heavenly Jerusalem
And the heaven of the blessed!
Could I stay a little longer
To be able to contemplate
The Heaven of Heaven?
But no, I have to leave already
The Wonder of Wonders
For I am only a mortal being
Not yet a god!
