DID YOU KNOW THAT THE KEEP IS THE HIGHEST TOWER IN THE ALHAMBRA?

26/05/2016

Situated on the northern section of the wall next to the Plaza de los Aljibes, the Keep (Torre del Homenaje) is the highest tower in the Alhambra. The terrace on its roof offers the best views from anywhere in the monument. Another tower known as the Torre del Cubo was built at its base in Christian times. This circular bastion extended outwards to improve the defence of the Keep.
