Opinions about Royal Quarters of Granada
Beautiful newly renovated place
Small little-known newly renovated place with beautifully restored decorations. Good example of Moorish history and architecture, has nice quiet gardens. There is just one room (Palacio de Almanjana) with a wooden frame.

Located in the Realejo, the old Jewish neighborhood which you should also see when visiting Granada. You would need half an hour to see it, and the entrance is free. It’s just five minute-walk from the center of Granada.
Great piece of Moorish architecture
It is a small but lovely place, great piece of Moorish architecture near the city center of Granada. 1000 year old site, older than the Nasrid palace of the Alhambra. It's not anything like the Alhambra, but it's worth visiting.

Consists of an original square room decorated with beautiful plasterwork and the original flooring, some excavations, nice gardens and upstairs there is an exhibition room.
