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

You can pop in for a couple of minutes after Cathedral to view Islamic detailed architecture - one room. Free unless going in eroom itself where it is max 10 at a time. If you've seen the Alhambra, it's more of that. Not worth paying...More

Went there many years ago (this is also recommended in my guidebook). This time, I took the short guided tour (€2, led by students of the university to which this building belongs now). With the tour, you could see the beautifully preserved Nasrid-era ornate mihrab...More

You don't need long to visit but you really should go see the amazing exquisite architecture - it's stunning - plus it doesn't cost much to go inside. Definitely recommend

Opposite the Royal Chapel its well worth a visit as inside it has rich decoration similar in style as found in the Alhambra.

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

Although the visit is short in the form of a 15-20 minutes guided tour you get to see 2 very well preserved rooms, a small, but very ornate muslim prayer room and a bigger room with an amazingly decorated wooden ceiling. The prayer room decorations...More

This was a school established by the Nastrid Sultan Yusuf I in the 14th century. Although not much to see except a few rooms, it is worthwhile to stop and see the prayer room with its beautifully preserved ornate architecture. It’s right next to the...More
