Stop At: Generalife Realejo-San Matias, 18009 Granada Spain

The Generalife is the villa with gardens used by the Muslim kings of Granada as a place of retreat and rest. It was conceived as a rural villa, where ornamental gardens, orchards and architecture were integrated in the vicinity of the Alhambra.
The name we give to the Generalife complex literally means Yannat al-Arif: "The Architect's Garden", an allusion to the gardens and orchards that supplied fruit and vegetables to the Nasrid court. However, the palace to which we are heading, designed as a resting place for the monarch, was what the poet Ibn al-Jayyab called "the royal house of happiness".

Stop At: Palacio El Partal, Calle Real de la Alhambra 2, 18009 Alhambra Spain

El Partal integrates archaeological and architectural remains corresponding to palatine rooms.

Its name in Arabic means portico, and refers to the remains of the residence of Sultan Muhammad III, the northernmost and oldest.

In these gardens, you can see the remains of several palaces, as this area was inhabited by the Muslim nobility. The most important was the Palace of Yusuf III, with a floor plan similar to the Palace of Comares, sadly demolished in the 18th century.

The Partal Gardens are an incredible place to stroll or stop during your visit to the Alhambra in Granada.
