Palacio de Carlos V

Design by Pedro Machucha, the Palace of Charles V is undoubtedly one of the best construction of the Renaissance in Spain. Located in La Alhambra it was intended to house the Emperor’s court and residence.

The plan of the palace is square with an inner circular courtyard that imprints its presence within the islamic landscape of la Alhambra as if it were a seal to commemorate the reconquest of the city in 1492.
