Facade of the Palace of Comares
Palace in Granada
The facade of the Palace of Comares one of the buildings which make up the Palacio de Comares. Which is one of the palaces that make up the Palacio Nazaríes in the Alhambra Complex, in Granada, Spain.
Yusuf I wanted his official residence’s decoration to amaze the visitor, so he ordered the architects to build it and adorn it in a exquisite way, although he probably did not see the final result, as several inscriptions affirm that his son Mohammed V was responsible for it. Mohammed V finished the works and constructed a façade on the southern side of the Patio del Cuarto Dorado.
The left door of this façade leads to a hall decorated with plaster work with a frieze of mocarabes and the interlacing ceiling was painted during the reign of the Catholic Monarchs with an inscription that refers to the taking of the city of Granada. It leads to a dark winding passage leads to the Court of the Myrtles.
