The Alcazar del Genil is an Almunia, a palace of the nobility located outside the city walls, among orchards and gardens. It is said that the Aixa the mother of Boabdil, the last King of Granada, was living there until the city was taken by the Catholic Kings.

The Alcazar is now home to the Fundacion Francisco Ayala and is free to visit (from Monday to Friday, 9h-15h).

It has lost quite a lot of space (it even boasted a huge pool in middle age, where naval battles were recreated) but it still has wonderful ceilings and walls plasters decorations.
