||If there is one building that symbolizes Spain-its history, its romance, its mystery, its conjoining of disparate strains into one, single, recognizably Spanish cultural statement-it is the Alhambra. This program, produced by the Spanish Ministry of Culture, provides a detailed tour of the buildings and grounds, as well as an explanation of the purpose and function of the citadel, and provides historical portraits of those who built and modified it, from Mohammed Ibn al-Amar in 1238 through Carlos V.
