Palacio de los Córdova, Granada: A Photo Tour

Palacio de los Córdova, Granada: A Photo Tour

At the foot of the hill at Cuesta del Chapiz, you will find a big old door – the gates to Palacio de los Córdova.

I went past many times, as I visit Granada pretty frequently, and it felt almost impossible to find the doors open.

Luckily on the last trip in late October, I finally visited and was able to enjoy the gardens dressed in the most beautiful autumn colors.

History of Palacio de los Córdova

The palace was built on orders of military man and diplomat Luis Fernández de Córdova in the 16th century, in the Renaissance style.

In 1919 it was demolished and rebuilt in its current location. The palace is owned by the Granada City Council and it is used for Municipal Archives. While there isn’t much interesting to see in the main courtyard, a short stroll through the simple garden is certainly worth your time!

While it’s certainly not one of the most interesting places in Granada, if you pass by and see it open have a quick peek at the gardens.

There are also a few places nearby you might want to check out – Casa del Chapiz is just at the top of the same hill, and Carmen de la Victoria is directly opposite.

Once you’re at the top of the hill, you can continue exploring the Sacromonte barrio which you will see on your right side – take a walk up the hill to Sacromonte Cave Museum, or if you fancy a longer stroll, you can also visit Sacromonte Abbey.

Enjoy the photo tour below and I shared the location and the opening times at the bottom of the article.
