The entrance ticket is only EUR2 and worth the price. The Madrassah is a well preserved example of the beautiful decorations favoured by the Nasrid sultans. Take a close look at the wall carvings and ceilings to appreciate the level of detail that goes into...More

The Palacio de la Madraza is now part of the University of Granada. Inside this structure, the room to see is the preserved Islamic prayer room, which is absolutely beautiful (I have uploaded a few photos along with my review). The room itself has limited...More

A super small place e that will take 30 mins to go round but well worth it for the Moorish decoration to view - English information cards available. Beautiful, stunning and not to be missed as it is next door to the Cathedral.

If you liked the Alhambra, you cannot miss this little jewel: the former Islamic school at the time of the Moorish kings. It is a small building just in front of the (by far more visited...) Capilla Real. For only 2 euros you can see...More

The Palacio de la Madraza is right in front of the Capilla Real, and it's one of the most splendid views in Granada. Once an Arab school (founded in 1349), it was transformed in the Casa del Cabildo (city hall), and the 14th century oratory...More

As lovely as the Nasrid palace, just a lot smaller. A quick visit, but still good value at 2 euros each.

This is conveniently situated near the Capilla Real, and recommended in our Guide Book. But you need to know that it is administered by the University of Granada, and if they have something on, you can't see round. This was the case on our visit,...More
