Full recordShow full item record
AbstractThe Alcazar of Seville is one of the monuments included in the World Heritage List for the city of Seville (Spain). It is an especially relevant complex both from an artistic and an historical point of view. Its buildings reflect over ten centuries of History of Spain and the city itself, as it has always functioned as a royal residence. This complex includes some of the most important Islamic and Mudejar buildings in Spain, and its long History has allowed the succession of numerous transformations, which can cause the original shape of buildings in each phase to be difficult to perceive. Based on a complete and detailed photogrammetric survey of the whole complex and on throughout historical and architectonical research, the School of Arabic Studies (CSIC) has carried out a number of studies on the most outstanding phases of creation for the Alcazar, and especially in the 14th Century, when it reached its brightest moment. Not only as a way to further research, but also in order to disseminate scientific knowledge reached, a digital model has been made, showing how it should have looked like in the 14th Century. This model has been used to develop an audiovisual piece in which the most important parts of the complex are shown, and their main characteristics are explained.
