Former Monastery Hotel
Located in the majestic region of Alhambra, this monastery was built in the 15th century by Queen Isabel, when the Christians retook the city from the Moors who were reigning there for many hundreds of years. The architecture and style of the building reflects this amalgamation of Arab and Christian elements that was characteristic of the era. After Isabel and her husband Ferdinand died, they were buried in the monastery's grounds, and a chapel was erected in their memory. Through the ages, the building has been used as barracks, home for the elderly, school, and so on, until it was made into a parador in 1944.
