  charles V palace
by doug48

this renaissance palace was built by king charles V . the palace was designed by pedro machuca in 1526. charles himself directed the work on the palace until his death in 1550. work on the palace stopped in 1568 due to the rebellion at the moriscos. the walls of the palace were not completed until 1923. even today the palace is not completely finished. this palace is so architectually out place in the alhambra one assumes it was built to insult the defeated moors. the alhambra museum is located in the charles V palace.

Address: Calle Real s/n
