Granada, 1340. Yusuf I and his son Muhammed V, sultans of the only remaining Muslim domain in Europe, want to show the world the intellectual power of seven centuries of Andalusian civilization. Whilst at the peak of its development, the Kingdom is facing the decline of its military power. They set their people a challenge – to produce a perfect piece of art, in the form of a building. This will become the Alhambra Palaces, one of the most iconic buildings on earth. Ibn al-Khatib, the chronicler, prime minister, philosopher, and doctor, is a protagonist and a first-hand witness to this golden era. He reveals a forgotten chapter of European history through his own extraordinary story.
