  • Well, I happened to arrive at this beautiful building that has the facade with a perfect traps. There he greeted me first and with a broad smile Alexander, a guide boy who kindly told me to wait for there to be a good group to start the visit, 2nd with guided tour!!! yujuu. Well the group was made and they did not pass to Jose our guide... I haven't had a better time on a guided tour of MY LIFE!... José, I declare myself IN LOVE with the way you explain things, is that we do not stop laughing, you are great and very Pro Isabel the Catholic, hehehe. Well our guided tour as I say was enjoyable, well explained and became short and everything. Both Alejandro and Jose are perfect guides, all the staff are lovely. I recommend you go because you will see magnificently preserved the madrasah, the coffered of the old rooms, the courtyard pool, the trampantojos, the old door (which is the one that is entering to buy the title) and the other that is painted and exposed in the courtyard centrico. It is certainly worth seeing everything and enjoying the comments of Jose (our guide) ... and yes, Fernando was a hotpanhahaha, Viva Isabel!

  • It is highly advisable to see the work of art left by the Muslims and that luckily not to be destroyed

  • If you liked the Alhambra, you cannot miss this little jewel: the former Islamic school at the time of the Moorish kings. It is a small building just in front of the (by far more visited...) Capilla R...  more »

  • Former Arabian university from 14th century with some well-preserved decorated interiors. In the first floor amazing wooden ceilings from the period when the building was used as a town hall. Low entrance fee.
  • So beautiful and easy to visit especially if you missed out on getting to the Alhambra
  • Me and the local imam visited this madrasah for spiritual enlightenment. We managed to get in without any fellow tourists in our way. We were floored by the beauty of the Islamic architecture at display here. Suddenly a gang of 30 tourists, armed with canon cameras busted through security. The delicate walls suffered from epileptic attacks from the amount of flash from cameras that pursued. The imam being the Good Samaritan that he is, immediately decided to take action and alert the authorities. We fled the scene and had heard that all 30 culprits have been locked away for good. Good riddance I say!
  • The oratorium has stunning decorations and there is also a mudejar dhome in the upper floor which is worth a visit. The guide was amazing too
  • Amazing place, so much history. MUST VISIT of Granada
