Part of the Alhambra compound , visually stunning but is a little out of place , round hole and square peg comes to mind

as the rain poured down we found the benefit of having this palace near by. it is split into 2 aspects. the ground floor had an interesting insight into the history of the Alhambra. the upper floor had an amusing group of paintings which improved in quality and interest as you move through the exhibition. however it is free for european passport holders. luckily we had ours in the bag

A small colloseum with unique echo! the only shame is the Carlos V erected the palace after he had demolated priorly built ancient building.

Seeing the effort of the Christian monarch to emulate the Muslim leaders before him was sad. The religious and imperial tensions played out in the Alhambra, especially reflected in this pathetic palace, are well worth seeing. It's an important part of world history even as the story itself is sad.

The structure is really nice, and when we were there the light and shadows made for great photography. But the highlight of our exhibit was a collection of Sorolla paintings from Grenada, Seville and his own apartment, emphasizing gardens and Moorish features. The regular art collection was pretty good, too.
