History and another Morrish Art rolled into one! The art work is a bit different from Alhambra because there are hint of colours mixed into it. For me, it is a taster to what is instored in the Alhambra. I would visit La Madrasa first...More

This a quick stop a few steps from the cathedral and it costs only a few euro. . The Moorish architecture is beautiful, especially the inlaid ceilings. This building was once the Muslim school, and after the Reconquest, the meeting place for the city council.

In fact, now the Palace of the Madraza is the 18th century building of baroque style. The real gem is inside of this existing building. The actual Madraza, the old Muslim University, was almost completely demolished. There is left only the graceful Islamic mihrab with...More
