The Palaces of the Nazaries were constructed by Ismail I, Yusuf I and Muhammad V (1312 to1391 AD) during the Nasrid dynasty.

Many people report visiting the Alhambra to be one of the highlights of their visit to Spain. The Palacios Nazaries must be considered the highlight of a visit to the Alhambra. Here you get to see one of the few Moorish Palaces still existing in Spain.

Hall of the Mexuar: This is one of the first rooms encountered in the Palace. It is also the most perplexing. The room feels to be a hodgepodge of structures with no clear purpose to the design. Considered one of the oldest areas in the palace, it has been remodeled a number of times.

Recommended Spain Travel Agent for arranging your visit to Granada

The Patio del Mexuar:
Here the sultan would receive petitions from his subjects and meet with his ministers.


Photo Above - The Patio del Mexuar

Few visitors to the sultan (14th century) would have seen anything more of the palace than this courtyard of the Mexuar..
Patio de los Leones:
The patio was constructed by Muhammad V.

Under the sultans, this area was the center of the family life inside the Palace.
