L'expression de la culture de l'eau dans l' Alhambra : poids de la réalité et pouvoir de l'imaginaire

Abstract : In Granada, just like in the whole peninsula, Alhambra is definitaly the most advanced expression of Muslim water culture heritage. Inspired by previous generations, the Nasride people has modified this tradition into a real Spanish water culture tradition. To do so, it had to penetrate inhabitants everyday and religious life, as well as to influence architecture through estheticism and fun. That being said, one should take a closer look into the heritage of that culture within Alhambra, as this heritage has nowadays two different aspects. On the one hand, those should be considered from a material point of view, as the study of the architecture of the palaces and gardens of nasride jewel of Granada will reveal its influence. But on the other hand, one can not and one should not forget that that culture has strongly expressed itself in the imaginary of the local people, sometimes even against its contemporary material and historical reality. With those two aspects in mind, it is important to us to question not only the power of both of those heritages on today's nasrid culture of water, but also the influence of each heritage in contemporay people relationship with Alhambra.
