Washington Irving's anniversary

From 2nd October 2009 to 28th February 2010, Granada (Spain) receives an exhibition on Washington Irving's works, which coincides with the 150th anniversary of his death. This is the closing event the city is carrying out to commemorate Irving's relationship with this Andalusian province, its customs and people portraited on his Alhambra Tales. Thus, manuscripts, engravings, old photos and films are shown in the gallery located at Carlos V's Palace. You can also learn about the route he followed through the provinces of Sevilla, Málaga and Granada (Andalusia) which helped him create the literary frame for his tales.
