Alcázar Genil

Granada, Spain

Alcázar Genil

The Alcázar Genil is a Muslim-era palace in the city of Granada, Spain. It was originally called al-Qasr al-Sayyid ("the palace of the lord") and is located beside the River Genil outside the Alhambra's walls. Today, only a pavilion of the palace is preserved.

It was built in 1218 or 1219 by Sayyid Ishaq, a member of the Almohad dynasty. In 1237, Muhammad I of the Nasrid dynasty took over Granada and the dynasty was since associated with the palace. His grandson, Muhammad III (reigned 1302–1309) temporarily lived here after he was dethroned, before he moved to Almuñécar.
