The residence of Aixa, the mother of Boabdil, the last king of Granada
This Nasrid palace located in the Albaicín district was constructed in the 15th century, over the remains of a Zirid palace dating back to the 11th century. This was the residence of Aisha, the queen and mother of Boabdil, and subsequently of the king and Isabel de Solís, a Christian slave who captivated him and later became his consort. When the Catholic Monarchs conquered the city, this building was given to Hernando de Zafra and later became a part of the Monastery of Santa Isabel la Real, before it became the property of the State in the 20th century. The palace boasts two storeys and a tower, build around a central courtyard, featuring a square pool in its centre. A large portion of the palace and its original decorations have been conserved and it has been afforded the classification of a monument of cultural importance.
