"A Circle Within A Square" Alhambra - Carlos V Palace Tip by keeweechic

Alhambra - Carlos V Palace, Granada: 41 reviews and 88 photos


It wasn’t until 1957 that Charles V Palace was finally completed. Finance as well as revolts during all these years were the main reason for such a long time in completion and during this time, portions of the existing construction actually collapsed through the palace’s lack of use. While the palace is square on the outside it has a circular centre courtyard with a two level colonnade supported by 32 columns.
