Unesco world heritage

Take your time and enjoy every single corner, lattice, room. Feel the overwhelming power of the light play, the pleasant sound of the water. Delight in the marvellous reflections of the stagnant water because you are in front of the only complete medieval Arab Palatino (Royal residence) building still perfectly preserved today.

Declared UNESCO World Heritage with the rest of the Alhambra, the Nasrid Palaces are the start of the visit. Be careful! I highly recommend scheduling a time and buying tickets online if you do not want to have the unpleasant surprise of endless lines or signs saying there are no tickets available!

I recommend getting up early, being the first ones to get in (I did at 8.30 am) as then you will be able to go at your own rhythm and be one step ahead of the enormous crowd of people, despite there being "limited" access. Come with comfortable shoes, water and something to eat because time goes by without you even noticing and once you are done visiting you will need to charge the batteries!

The Palatino buildings consist of the Mexuar, where the public administration and state offices used to be; the Palacio de Comares, official residence and the Palacio de los Leones, private area where you find the harem.

We are faced with an excellent plan of spaces and uses, as well as one of the best evolutions of tastes and architectural eras of Arab art.

Did you know for example that the Palacio de los Leones (Lions' Palace), one of the most admired, was due to the interesting friendship between Mohamed V and the Castilian King Pedro I? Well, these types of surprises are around every corner.

Prepare your eyes, let yourself go and enjoy the beauty of these Palatino buildings. They say that when you go to Florence one suffers from Stendhal, I would not know what kind of illness this place causes, but it is definitely no syndrome, but more a glimpse of paradise ;-) I love this concept of paradise on earth!

Better than reading on, come here and feel for yourself the timeless beauty of these Palatino buildings, unique in the world. Advice: the best views, apart from the viewpoint of San Nicolás, are the one from the Patio de la Acequia in the Generalife.
