The Alhambra Palace is certainly a must see palace and the palace itself lies to the north of Charles V palace and it was once the residence of the Moor Kings of the Nasrid dynasty. The palace itself has surrounding walls and many towers and the Arabs called it the “Red City” because of the color of the stone used in the palace, and when you buy your ticket you get admission for half an hour though there is no restriction to the visiting times.

The Palacio del Generalife is another great tourist attraction and it lies to the east of the Alhambra palace and also on Cerro del Sol slopes and it was also where the Moorish royalty and the kings lived during summer times being completed in the year 1319 under the reign of Ismail I.

There is also the palace that was constructed for Charles V and which lies to the east of Plaza de los Aljibes and though the construction of this palace began in 1526 it was not completed. However, the Palacio de Carlos V is still a must see when in Granada and even though it never was completed, this palace is still a huge structure and is a shining example of the architecture of Spain and more particularly its High Renaissance architecture.
