Dominating the Granada sky

Great

Its disturbing figure dominates the entire sky of Granada with the Torre de Vela as standard and with a clear declaration of intent: La Alcazaba marked the beginning of the city in the Alhambra in the 13th century.

It is the oldest part, everything started there: La Medina, with more than 5.000 people living there, different shops, houses, warehouses and the later palaces so impressive today.

The structure and design definitely indicate that it is a military fortress and that it had defensive purposes. One day, the sultan Mohamed I, arriving from North Africa, decided to look for a site that was well protected and at the same time functional, where he could see the entire territory of Granada. With the natural defence of the hill of Sarika, la Alcazaba started to take the shape as a new town in the Kingdom of Granada.
