Cathedral: The transformation of the Arab medina into an imperial city

Walk through the places where the ancient Arab medina was located and discover how Granada was transformed into a catholic city after being reconquered by the Catholic Kings

Description

After the Christians conquered the Nasrid Emirate of Granada in 1492, several changes happened in the city. These changes caused a succession of urban and ideological transformations during the XV and XVI century. These changes marked the shift from the Islamic medina to the Christian city.

While walking we will discover the most representative buildings of that urban and ideological transformation. We will visit the Cathedral of Granada which was build where the Aljama Mosque was, The Royal Chapel where the remains of the Catholic Kings are laid to rest and La Lonja. We will also visit La Madraza building which is the first and only public university of Al-Andalus during the XIV century. This became afterward the first City hall of Granada. We will also visit the former silk market and the Corral del Carbón. This last building is the only Muslim “alhóndiga”entirely kept in Spain.

Not to forget that discovering this magic area of the city will make you see Granada from a different perspective and hence, to appreciate it more.
