I just saw the last portion of a documentary on the fortress/palace of Alhambra on the History Channel while on my lunch. I didn't get to see the name of the program itself unfortunately, but I'll be keeping on eye out for it again. Beyond it's association with the board game I found it very interesting from a historical perspective.

The Alhambra is the greatest example of Islamic military architecture in Europe. Alhambra will bring to life the ingenious engineering solutions and treacherous political betrayals that gave birth to what is arguably the most perfect example of Moorish architecture in existence.


    Tonight at 8pm and 1am in the Great White North.

Having trouble finding it on the guide. Is this the History Channel?
