Nasrid Palaces, the main highlight of the Alhambra. The Nasrid Palaces comprises three main buildings: 

1. The Mexuar, the oldest hall used for ministerial meetings and as a courtroom. 

2. The Palace of Comares, was the official residence of the king. It includes several rooms that surround it, such as the Court of the Myrtles (Patio de los Arrayanes – with a bright green pond), the Hall of Ambassadors and the Hall of the Boat. 

3. The Palace of the Lions, also known as the ‘Patio de los Leones’ (the main courtyard). The Nasrid Palaces include other notable areas like the Hall of the Two Sisters along with the Lindaraja balcony, Oratory (at the back of the Mexuar), Daraxa’s Mirador, Hall of the Abencerrajes, Daraxa’s Garden and the Hall of the Kings.

This palace served as the summer retreat for the kings of Granada. If you visit it during spring, summer or autumn, you’ll be greeted by a colorful display of beautiful flowers and colors. Within the Generalife Gardens, you’ll find the Sultana’s Garden or Courtyard of the Cypress (Jardín de la Sultana) and the Water-Garden Courtyard (Patio de la Acequia ), both showcasing a long pool encircled by flowerbeds, fountains, and pavilions.

Admire the Charles V Palace, built by Emperor Charles V within the Alhambra’s Muslim citadel, conquered by his grandparents, the Catholic Monarchs. Construction began in 1527 and concluded in 1957. It is probably the most important Renaissance building in Spain.

Alcazaba is the oldest part of the Alhambra, dating back to the 12th century. Constructed by Mohammed I, it once served as a fortress but later became primarily used for military purposes after the palaces were completed. Key points of interest within Alcazaba include the Armas Square, the Adarves Garden, the Vela Tower, and its stunning views of Granada from the very top.
