Squaring the circle

Great

If it was located in any another place, if you didn’t visit it after the Nasrid Palace, if it did not enforce one culture upon another... I don't know, that’s a lot of ifs for the only Renaissance palace in our country. I think it does not get the recognition it really deserves and is always a "guest star" of the Alhambra.

It is true that after seeing the splendour of the Palatino Nasrid city, with its oriental architecture and its exquisiteness... bumping into the "rustic" Palacio de Carlos V is like realizing the tale of the thousand and one nights has come to an end.

But forget about everything we have seen before and let’s try to enjoy a Renaissance palace with an accentuated Roman impact. During my visit I was surprised at the set that Pedro Machuca (the architect who devised this place), managed to realize between the tough squared exterior made of hard albeit elegant shapes and the undulating interior, made from open spaces and sets of columns. It really is squaring the circle!
