The Nasrid palaces are the area of the Alhambra that is time controlled and this is where it is difficult to get tickets for. The Nasrids were a dynasty which ruled Granada between 1230 until 1492. The palaces are an example of what happens if there is unlimted funds for interior design and architecture in the home of many Sultans over centuries. It would be like an attempt to create heaven on Earth. The use of water features, wall decorations, interior spaces and amazing views would impress even the most uncouth philistine.
