There are windows to history. And also doors. One of them is the one of Elvira, where a route begins through the Muslim vestiges housed at the Palace of Dar-al-Horra as neuralgic point.
Granada is an ancient city: the people of the Bronze Age, the Iberians, Romans, Visigoths, Arabs and Spaniards left their mark on the city. It has a long history, and the periods just before and after the conquest by the Catholic Kings, on 2nd January 1492, are particularly interesting. Before this date, Granada was a purely Muslim city, with many beautiful mosques, narrow streets and typical markets, and after it fell into Christian hands, it was turned into an example of modern city of the new Spain.
