Palacio de Dar-Al-Horra Granada

Dar al Horra palacePalacio de Dar-Al-Horra (stock.adobe.com/JackF)The Palacio de Dar-Al-Horra is a palace situated in the top part of the Albaicín district of Granada. This 15th century palace was the residence of Aixa; she was the mother of the latest Moorish sultan Boabdil of Granada. 'Dar Al-Horra' means 'Home of the Honest'. The palace is discretely hidden in a narrow alleyway Callejón Ladrón del Agua.

HIt is one of the last Naziri buildings from the Moorish period. After the Moors were driven from Granada, the palace was used as the monastery of Santa Isabel la Real. The atmospheric inner garden with pool and the religious inscriptions carved in plaster work are notable characteristics of the palace.

After the Alhambra palace, the Palacio de Dar-Al-Horra is the most beautiful example in Granada of Moorish art with its beautiful architecture and decor. It is perhaps one of the less famous attractions in Granada, but certainly no less interesting.
