This Arab palace-fortress was built in the 11th century by King Badis of Granada. It is perfectly adapted to the contours of the land, and takes maximum advantage of the elevation of a hill. It is made up of two concentric spaces: the outside part is on the lower level, and the inner part houses the palace.
