“Beautiful imaginings!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

The palace is empty but beautiful tiles, ornate wood work, and fireplaces, graceful archways, and fountains make it fun imagining the people who might have lived in such a place and what it would have looked like with furniture. Worth a visit,

“Only interesting if you have a guide”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

There is no information available without a guide, it is a very interesting place when someone explains it but otherwise it is a series of empty rooms

“Beautiful, but hire a guide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

I went in 2008 with my cousin, and we just wandered, read our guidebook, and thought it was beautiful. I just went back with my fiance and his mother and a guide, and learned so much more! See if you can hire a guide for your visit, or even for the day, and you will get so much more out of it.

“A beautiful building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

For those who have been to Seville or Toledo in Spain this place illustrates how Spain and the North African countries were once connected. A bit busy to really enjoy throroughly but well worth a visit.

“A Bit Overrated.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

I would skip this in favor of the Madrasa if you are short of time. Large place to wander through but not much character.
