The Palace of Los Córdova is another somptuous palace which lies in the shadow of the Alhambra, and this time almost litteraly because it is at the end of the carrera del Darro, right under the Generalife buildings. The palace was built between 1530 and 1592, but not in the exact location we now find it. It was demolished and reconstructed at least two times and it's only in the 1960s that the palacio was reborn at the end of the paseo de los tristes. Since 1984, it is the siege of the City Historical Archives, and it hosts lectures, concerts and can be rented for weddings !

The visit is free
