“El Partal”

During our visit to the Alhambra we came across “El Partal”. This term is derived from from the Arab word “bartal” which references a portal, this being the highlighted architectural element of this structure. We can view how the portal of five arches is reflected in the pond before it. “El Partal” is on the walls of this citadel and is the oldest palace of those conserved within the Alhambra.
