Description: Hotel Casa MoriscaMorisco is the name given to the Muslims who stayed on in Granada after the conquest. The boutique hotel Casa Morisca offers accommodation with a unique flavour within a grand old house dating back to the end of the 15th Century.
The hotel is situated in the historic district of the lower Albayzin at the foot of the Alhambra. This old Moorish quarter of Granada, with its maze of typical narrow streets and a Unesco's Patrimony of the World status is also close to the street along the river Darro, giving easy access to the city centre and the Alhambra. All the magic and charm of the Alhambra are reflected in the Morisco houses and can be appreciated in this hotel; stucco-work arches, panels of original Morisco coloured tiles and multicoloured wooden ceilings.
The patio preserves its original morisco pool and on all four sides there are galleries supported by pilasters and columns. This ancient interior, was given a new street façade in the 17th Century.
