“Impressive Architecture”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

The Carlos V Palace was built by the Emperor Carlos V, the grandson of the Catholic Kings. It was a sign that Christianity had conquered the Moors. It is considered one of the most beautiful Renaissance buildings in Spain. Its architecture is very impressive. Inside are the Fine Arts Museum and the Alhambra Museum, both of which are closed on Mondays. The museums hold very interesting exhibitions and are free.

Reviewed 24 February 2012

Interesting enough but there isn't loads to see - worth going to if you are going to the Alhambra anyway.

“Take a short time to visit this atraction”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

If you're in a hurry, you can skip this castle. The museum is the most interesting part of it, but it closes in the beggining of the afternoon.

“museo ed arte”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

Very Impressive the exposition of grafich art. The museum of the Arab arichitecture gives more info regarding the magnificent ornmenti of the Nazaries Palace. Unfortunately it was closed on Monday morning. The other museum on the fist floor was also very nice and very well organized. It was a good walking after the visit at Nazaries Palace.
