The Madraza (or Madrasah) was built by Yusuf I in 1349 next to the Main Mosque of Granada, and it hosted the first University of the city.
Later, during the dark times of the Spanish Inquisition, the site was robbed and most of the books kept on its library were burnt on the famous bonfire at Bib-Rambla square.
The palace has been transformed and addapted to new fashions and necesities through the centuries. Nowadays it is a great sample of the convulsed history of the city.
The muslim oratory that still remains inside and the Hall of the Knights XXIV and its ceiling are worthy of admiration.

Not far from this palace, the "Carmen" of the Rodríguez-Acosta Foundation dominates the Realejo neighborhood with its singular architecture.
José María Rodríguez Acosta, painter and member of one of the wealthiest families of the Granadian bourgeoisie, designed this house and study as a source of inspiration for his paintings. Without meaning it, the building became his greatest piece.

He fused different styles as Art Deco, Orientalism, Clasicism so this construction turned a unique place, not to be missed.
Specially the gardens, the painter's study and the tunnels excavated on the Mauror hill, very close to the Alhambra, that he found out when bought the plot.
