The Royal Orchard.

Together with the Alhambra and the Albaicín district of Granada, it has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. This was the country residence of the sultan, the orchard which provided the palaces with food supplies, and a recreational area for the nobility.

In Muslim culture, the image of paradise is linked to the concept of the garden, a lush green space to captivate the senses. In this case, this vast fertile terrain was created by diverting the course of the river Darro by means of huge canals that carried the water up to the Generalife. The colourful and outstandingly beautiful Acequia Courtyard serves as the entry point into the premises. The building consists of two structures located at each end of a large courtyard, with a pool in the middle. The recreational area of the Generalife, built between the 13th and 14th centuries, lies on the slopes of the Cerro del Sol, and offers breathtaking views.
