It sits on a rocky formation and to contemplate all the beauty of this site it is necessary to go beyond its walls. It served as a military building and then as the royal palace of Granada, in the establishment of the reign of Alhamar. Its interior is made up of a group of buildings with delicate artistic finishes where the court was established, the barracks, in short, a whole citadel protected by towers, even after the reconquest. The reddish colour of its façade has the property of toning up the silvery one during the night and the golden one during the day. Legends and poems tell of the splendour that springs from each of its spaces.
