Horno de Oro Moorish House

LoadingAdd to My Granada

There are several Moorish houses dotted along the Calle Horno de Oro, but this one is particularly well preserved here in the Albaicín district. The blind façade, in line with Muslim tradition, preserves the intimacy of the interior. It is built around a courtyard with rectangular central pool. The longer sides each lead on to porches whilst the shorter sides are adorned with triple arches and typical Moorish columns, a layout echoed on the first floor too. The side alcoves are decorated with Mudejar patterns.

This house was built in the late 15th century, and the changes it underwent in the 16th century have made it a particularly interesting example of Moorish architecture. It clearly shows how Islamic elements (the blind façade, the decoration) and Spanish elements (porches on the long sides of the courtyard) can be integrated.
