The Palace of Nasrid, also known as the Old Royal Room, is composed of two separate palaces of the Pomegranate Alhambra Palace, the Palace of Comares and the Palace of the Lion, as well as the appendage of the pomegranate in the numerous palaces, palaces, large houses and tower palaces where the Alhambra Palace is located, Mexuar. These dwellings are replaced by Islamic precepts that do not build anything over time, and that each Sultan should become his palace to show his personal strength. The Catholic king's decision guaranteed their protection in the face of other Arab monuments being mistreated, abandoned or destroyed, mainly as Napoleon's army tried to destroy the castle as it fled. One of the palaces is the seat of the Nasrid Court, which performs administrative, protocol, residential and recreational functions. In chronological order, they were built after the castle, Generalife and Partal, and their architecture dates back to the first third of the fourteenth century.
