Palacio de Carlos V

Palacio de Carlos V
  • Alhambra Route - Daytime

Built in the Christian style, the Palace of Charles V was constructed in the Alhambra complex at the Emperor's command, as he wanted to establish a new residence in Granada. Since 1958 the palace has housed the Granada Fine Arts Museum, which has some 2,000 pieces, including paintings and sculptures. The works on display are mainly from the 15th to the 20th centuries.
