A few weeks ago, when I went back home for Easter, I was lucky enough to spend a few days with my parents revisiting Granada. We got to see La Alhambra, the Royal Chapel, where the Catholic Monarchs are buried (along with their daughter Juana, their son-in-law Felipe and their grandson, Miguel de la Paz), the Monastery of La Cartuja (founded by Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba) and many other places.
But the thing that matters for this blog is this exhibition I went to at the Monastery of San Jerónimo. In it, there was a display of several costumes and props from the show Isabel, and it was a delight. Seeing these costumes up close, there were moments where I forgot they had been made for a TV show, and not rescued from some long-forgotten chest containing actual remains of 15th century court clothes. It was spectacular.
I have attached the photos I took below (along with a few others from my trip) and I hope you will enjoy it. It is worth mentioning that I was surprised by Isabel’s coronation gown: in the show, it looked like it was white, but it was actually more of a beige colour (I guess pure white in a TV show, with all the lights, would be impossible). Enjoy!
