Description

Al-Qasr al-Sayyid (Alcázar Genil) was built by the sayyid Ishaq b. Yusuf in 1218 and later transformed during the Nasrid era. Navagero saw its garden, known as the Queen’s Orchard, in use. It had a large pond measuring 121 m long and 28 m wide. The myrtles could still be seen in 1978, but they have now disappeared.
