Palace of Carlos V, Granada
(3.7/5 based on 550+ 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.

  • When visiting the Alhambra I would highly recommend a visit to the Palace, the ground floor houses the museum of the Alhambra which has some very good artifacts as well as information and then an area...  more »
  • inserted in a much more interesting which is the Alhambra Palace, loses charm and interest. If you really want to watch him do it while you're in line for the Palace Nazaries

  • This Palace you will see on the way to the palaces of the Alhambra, as only view Church of Santa María de la Alhambra. Its construction was begun in the 16th century. The main architectural style is Renaissance. Remembered the round inner courtyard framed by two-story buildings with rows of columns on the balustrade. If time permits after visiting the Alhambra, you can come back again and visit two of the building of the Museum of fine arts and the Museum of the Alhambra.

  • Really nothing special, this is a renaissance style palace built by Carlos V, meant for him and his wife, but he actually never even spent a night there. There is a museum inside, entrance is free, and it is interesting in a way. But palace is nothing special in terms of architecture or history it carries.
  • 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.
  • Strangely does not fit here amongst the rest of the beautiful moorish architecture of Alhambra.
  • Beautiful. A must if you ever go to spain
