It is the hidden gem of the historic center!!! Unbelievable design for an Andalucian school . After ur visit you can go to alcaicaria where you will find a number of souvenirs shops with moderate prices.

Nice place for a visit near the Cathedral! It’s not too big, but rooms with intricate muqarnas vaults you can see there up close we’re really beautiful! The opening hours are rather limited, so check them out before ten visit.

Reminiscent of the Mezquita Cathedral in Cordoba, but very well preserved. Walls were covered with plaster which saved the intricate artwork underneath. Used to be a university during Moorish times.

I really loved my visit to the Madraza. The architecture and design is very much like the Alhambra but I had the prayer room to myself here and wasn't in the tourist scrum of the Nasrid palaces. You have time to appreciate the intricacy of...More
