Alhambra y Paquete Al Andalus en Andalucía Hospes (5)

The Alhambra in Granada is perhaps the most important tourist and historical point of the city of Granada, being a mandatory stop for thousands of tourists from all over the world, since it is a monument that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It was built between the 13th and 14th centuries, being the jewel in the crown of the Emirate of Granada, whose territories stretched from part of Córdoba, Seville, Jaén, Murcia and Cádiz, to Almería, Málaga and Granada.

This historical monument owes its name to its characteristic red color, whose meaning in Arabic is Castillo Rojo. It is located on the hill of al-Sabika, with privileged views of the entire city. This was the Palace of the old Moorish Kings, before being expelled from Spain, then this castle became a military fortress thanks to its strategic location and its unique views that allow monitoring the entire city.

Its walls, ceilings, textures, patios and views have something special and unique, making it one of the most beautiful places with more history than you have visited.

Just 25 minutes walk or 18 minutes by car, you will find the Boutique Hotel, Hospes Palacio de los Patos. A combination of two buildings that look with complicity: the Palace of the Ducks, a careful reconversion of a Palace that dates from the nineteenth century of classical and industrial architecture cataloged as an Asset of Cultural Interest, and a new building, the Alabaster Building , which mixes depths and transparencies behind a majestic and subtle latticework.

With 42 rooms, this Boutique Hotel will make you feel at home, since its service, attention and facilities will make you feel special and cared for. In addition to having a privileged location to know Granada as it is located in one of the most important streets of the city and a few minutes from the Cathedral, the Royal Chapel, the Jewish Quarter and the City Hall.
