Capital at the entrance to the Alhambra Museum

Following the Christian conquest, the household items remaining in the palace city of the Alhambra were protected and reused to furnish rooms where they could be enjoyed. Among the collection are the outstanding Vase of the Gazelles, an exemplary piece of Hispano-Islamic ceramic work, and the collection of household ceramics whose development over time is widely represented.

The styles of artistic decoration and technique from the Hispano-Islamic beginnings to the Mudejar period are extensively represented in the Alhambra Museum's collection, which includes pieces of ceramics, marble, plasterwork, carved decorative panels, wood, glass, leather etc.
