The capital of Andalusia is Seville, but the high court of the Autonomous community is located in Granada. This is unlikely to interest tourists, but the building itself is of undoubted interest. This is the most iconic building in the style of mannerism in Granada. The court itself was organized by order of Queen Isabella of Castile, but work began only in 1505, a year after her death. The building itself began to be built only on the orders of Isabella's grandson Charles V (in Spain, Charles I) in 1531, and was completed under his great-grandson-formally the first king of Spain, Philip II in 1587. The facade was designed by the architect Francisco del Castillo el Mozo, the sculptor Alonso Hernández and the Mason Martín Díaz de Navarrete.

This beautiful building is situated in the heart of the bustling Plaza Nuevo. You get impressive views of the Alhambra up on the hill.

Remember, this is the courts. So if you are not in awe about the law, coming here to hear your sentencing will make you believe.. The building is very imposing and regal. Worth a visit when visiting the area.

Beautiful exterior design, and a grand courtyard. Visiting in November with not many crowds makes everything more enjoyable. I’m not sure if you can enter to peek around as the doors remain closed

This outstanding building in Plaza Nueva definitely attracts attention. This renaissance style palace was made royal chancery by the emperor Charles V and is performing practically the same duties now, as the High Court of Andalusia resides there. Impossible to miss if on Plaza Nueva and walking towards Darro river.
