Granada city center - Palace Carlos V

Guided visit to Granada city center with our teacher Paco!

Today our teacher Paco has visited the Carlos V. Palace with his students.

The Charles V. Palace is a Renaissance building located on the top of the Alhambra hill and inside the Nasrid fortification of the Alhambra. When Carlos V came to Granada on his honeymoon, he fell in love with the Alhambra and the city. He took up residence in the Arab palaces but decided to build his own larger, more spacious palace adjoining the Nasrid Palaces so that he could continue to enjoy them.

He commissioned an architect to design a building befitting a Roman Emperor and work began in 1527.

The palace building is 63m2 square on the outside with a 30m diameter circular courtyard on the inside.

The project was partly paid for with taxes collected from the Moriscos (Muslims who had converted to Christianity) in return for being allowed to stay in Granada and continue with their traditions.
