Palace of Carlos V, Granada

Categories: Architectural Buildings, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
3.6/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web
This stunning palace called Palace of Carlos V is a popular attraction in the area where you can admire architecture and culture of the 1500s. The exterior of the building is especially impressive, but you will find only the southern and western sides decorated. Don’t miss the inner patio that is uniquely circular and composed of two levels. While the interior is quite plain, be sure to check out the museum in the same building that features an art gallery.

  • Interesting building which was never used by King Carlos after it was finished. Big square building with a most interesting center section. A speaker can stand in the middle of a very large round area...  read more »
  • This building located in the surroundings of the Alhambra, in the Spanish Renaissance style, and built by Carlos V, contains in its interior, dependencies that in their day were projected to accommodate the needs of functional and representative of the Court, as Carlos V, had its dependencies in Daraxa rooms and the whole of the Patio de los Leones. It is from my point of view, a work that be must be related to constructions properly said of the Alhambra, with its palaces nazaries and the gardens of the Generalife.

  • Each of the King's need to build your own monumenttinsa and the Alhambra pompöösi täysrenessanssipalatsi is just the kind of Charles the fifth. The architecture of the building is completely different from the other buildings of the Alhambra. From the outside, you wouldn't believe the kind of inner courtyard of the Palace can be found. The building is a Museum and hosts concerts.

  • Frankly disappointed from this one. The exterior is fab, but once in you will find a palace that was not "completed" at the time because of no funds. Hence from an historic perspective this place passed through several ages and has no well defined character. At the time of my visit the second floor was hosting an exhibition and I fear this is the case thorough the whole year. Entrance is free though, or at least nobody asked us for the tickets, so you may go without bothering to cut down your holiday budget.
  • Precioso por dentro.
  • Entrada gratuita!
  • Loved the place. Well preserved.
  • alhambra was cool, but i dont see the big deal about the palace. lots of detail, but no historical information
