Explore 3-D reconstruction of manuscripts

El Tesoro Libreria de la Alhambra

"Andalusia was, above all, famous as a land of scholars, libraries, book lovers and collectors... the libraries of Moorish Spain contained close to a million manuscripts"

In an age where the Internet is mostly used to spread imagination of fear and prejudice, of lies and lunacy, to shut people off the Al-Andalus project in Second Life is an important effort to imagine, to promote cultural connections and to use the Internet to promote justice and diversity.

About the group

Al-Andalus is the communication channel of the Al-Andalus Sim community project.

The flag of Al-Andalus consists of green (Caliphate of Cordoba) and white (Almohad Empire), with a red triangle and sun (Granada, Spain). This historical meaning co-exists with a symbolical meaning, identifying green with hope and white with peace:

"The green and white flag
returns after centuries of war
to say peace and hope
under the sun of our land."
