The Moorish House – Granada

The Moorish House, Granada, Spain. These buildings were built to be used by families composed of an average of four people. The construction rises in the space of the old enclosure of the Roman city, which has had a continuous urban occupation since antiquity, as evidenced by the remains that appeared in the courtyard of the house itself (the columns, the stone plinths and the curbstone of the water well). On some occasions it has been proved that these are old Nasrid houses reformed and / or enlarged in the sixteenth century. Being the Albaicín during the sixteenth century, the place where the Moors lived, examples of architecture of this type are restricted to this area. The Moorish building has two heights and a gallery to the interior courtyard.
