"Chronicle of the Conquest of Granada" is an incredible romantic history by American writer, historian, and diplomat of the early 19th century, Washington Irving. Irving used an imaginary chronicler, Fray Antonio Agapida, whose dialog livens up the flavor of the text. This work was inspired by Irving's stay in the palace Alhambra in Granada in 1829.
