MEXUAR

Aucun commentaire


The Mexuar is your first step in the visit of the Palacios Nazaris. Its name is derived from the Arab word Maswar, the place where the council of Ministers met with the Sultan. It was also the place where the Sultan dispensed the justice.



The construction of the place is thought to date from Ismail I (1314 - 1325) but has been altered a lot since then.




At the other end of the room, on your way to the Cuarto Dorado, you can see a little door leading to the Oratory, with its windows directed to the Albayzin. This is an oratory where the Muslims went to pray five times a day. One of the inscription on the wall comes from the Quran and says : "Come to pray. Don't be one of the negligent people."
