Once the tour is confirmed, it will start fromtheentrance area of Alcazaba, which is close to the Plaza de Aduana and the Roman theatre in Calle Alcabazilla, which forms part of the city walls. We willpass through the Puerta de la Bveda (Gate of the Vault), a typical Moorish puerta en recodo (a defensive castle entrance designed to delay the arrival of attackers). A little higher up, we pass through the Puerta de la Columnas (Gate of the Columns), which was built using Roman marble columns to hold up the Moorish horseshoe arches.

Entering the lower precincts of the Alcazaba, you see the second puerta en recodo under the Torre del Cristo (Christ's Tower). This was where the first mass was celebrated following the victory over the town by the Reyes Catolicos, and continued to be used as a chapel. The lower precinct follows the contours of the hill, and you can stop and rest at the Plaza de Armas, which is now a garden with fountains and a bastion on the south side which once defended the coast.

Following the little cobbled paths through the Puerta de los Cuartos de Granada (Gate of the Halls of Granada), which features a row of caliphal arches leading to the Torre de la Armadura Mudjar (Mudejar Armoury Tower) with its 16th-century carved wooden ceiling. The Torre de Maldonaldo (Maldonado Tower), with its original marble columns and balconies, offers the best views so far.

The next two courtyards in the palace are the Patio de los Naranjos (Courtyard of the Orange Trees) and the Patio de la Alberca (Courtyard of the Pool). The palace is quite extensive with arches, towers, gates, and original marble columns. The tour ends one hour later outside the palace.
