Nice place for a visit near the Cathedral! It’s not too big, but rooms with intricate muqarnas vaults you can see there up close we’re really beautiful! The opening hours are rather limited, so check them out before ten visit.

We had a wonderful tour in the city center. Our guide Rocio is great! She gives precise and interesting information over all the important places around the center.

From the Moors era, this small building served as a mosque and as a college as well. It is a very short visit. You can see in the walls that later was transformed into a catholic place.

Located near the Cathedral, the exterior is a magnificent and elaborate piece of Spanish baroque architecture, hiding a complex interior which retains the only Nasrid architecture remaining in the area. The building has had a chequered history. Originally a college, in the main area of...More

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
