Cuarto Real de Santo Domingo

The “Cuarto Real de Santo Domingo” is an old palace from the Almohade period. It is located in Granada, Andalusia next to the “Rabad al-Fajjarin”. It was situated in the “Huerta Grande de Almanxarra”.


After the conquest of Granada, the building was taken over by the Catholic Monarchs, who assigned it to the Dominicans, who joined it to the Convent of Santa Cruz la Real. After the “desamortización of Mendizabal”, it was taken by private owners. In 1990 the City Council acquired it and at the beginning of the XXI century, it was restored by the architects Antonio ORihuela and Antonio Almagro.

The building

The building was built in the Realejo. From an architectural point of view, it was the model followed in the construction of the Alhambra and the Alcázar Genil. The building has a tripartite plan with a central hall and two side alcoves. Its entrance is through a semicircle arch with eight pointed stars. The alcove on the left, has an exterior window and a flat roof and, on the right, there are podiums that communicates it with the rest of the house. When it passed to private owners, the qubba was surrounded by new buildings.
