Abstract

The research focuses on the innovative outcomes from the most recent restoration of the Oratory of the Partal Palace, a unique fourteenth century private palatine mosque that forms part of the Alhambra heritage complex. The Alhambra is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, key to understanding the history of intercultural processes in western European architecture. The restoration has revealed previously unknown fourteenth century inscriptions, decorative elements and technical solutions not known to have been employed in the Alhambra. It has significantly advanced the understanding of Nasrid carpentry construction techniques, enabled an entirely new interpretation of the Partal Palace building process and the Spanish restoration approaches of the last 180 years.
