    Tessellations of a plane means tiling that plane with a repeating pattern of the same figure. The simplest example are the square tiles in your bath room. There are 17 different patterns possible.

    The Alhambra is a fortified palace in the Spanish town of Granada constructed by the Moors. It is famish for its graphic art, especially the tilings on walls, floors and arches. Apparently all 17 possible tilings can be found there.
