Alcazaba

The Alcazaba

This fortress is the oldest part of the Alhambra. The current complex was built by Mohammed I. His son Mohammed II also had his residence in the Alcazaba, until the palaces were finished. From then on, the Alcazaba was only used as a fortress for military purposes. 

Arms Square

This square was the original entrance to the Alcazaba. It consisted of a series of constructions where different services were carried out for the inhabitants of the fortress.

Arms Tower

This tower was used as a way of communication between the Alhambra and the city through the neighbourhood of the Almanzora.

Watch Tower

The view from the top of the tower makes it possible to enjoy at the same time, the city of Granada, the Sierra Nevada, the Vega and the villages of the surroundings. It has a solid base and four floors with arches supported by pillars. The bell is an important element of this tower.

Garden of the Ramparts

This garden was so called because it was located on the parapet walk by the ramparts under the fortress and it is one of the places with the most beautiful views over the city.
