Patio of the Gilded Room

This small patio between the Mexuar and the Gilded Room (Cuarto Dorado) connects both palaces. During the Christian period, wooden galleries (kept until the 19th century) connected the higher chambers. The fountain in the centre of the patio is an exact copy (made in 1943) of the original piece, which is nowadays in the Daraxa's Gardens (Jardines de Daraxa).

Mohammed V constructed a façade on the southern side of this Patio. On the façade there are two identical gates with lintels, tiles on a ceramic skirting board and plasterwork decoration. Above it are two twin windows with canted festoon and a smaller one in the middle, surrounded by inscriptions from the Koran. The whole wall is beautifully decorated with ornaments and inscriptions, including the motto «Only God is Victor». One of the poems by Ibn Zamrak is tattooed on the frieze made of carved wood, as in other parts of the Nasrid palaces. 

The left door of this façade leads to a hall decorated with plasterwork with a frieze of mocarabes and the interlacing ceiling was painted during the reign of the Catholic Monarchs with an inscription that refers to the taking of the city of Granada.
