Photographer's Note

Hello friends,

These stairs belong to Charles V palace, in La Alhambra. Charles V, King and elected Emperor, was a monarch that was travelling throughout Europe when he decided to build his Palace in the Alhambra. His aim was not to establish his capital in Granada but to build another royal residence, significant for its symbolic value and location: a Muslim citadel conquered by his grandparents, the Catholic Monarchs.

Regards

Hola amigos,

Estas escaleras pertenen al palacio de Carlos V, en La Alhambra. Carlos V, Rey de España y Emperador electo de Alemania, decide edificar su Palacio Real en la Alhambra, después de la visita que realiza a Granada tras su boda en Sevilla con Isabel de Portugal en 1526. Su implantación, a pesar de su diseño y calidad formal, cambió la imagen del recinto alterando su tejido interior y la conexión con la ciudad. El proyecto original contemplaba una gran plaza porticada al oeste y otra más pequeña al sur modificando de forma importante los accesos.

Saludos
