The Najarra Palace in Almuñecar
La Najarra Palace is a beautiful neo-Arabic, Moroccan-style building inspired by the Arabic house-garden tradition. It was a constructed as a vacation home in the middle of the 19th Century by a wealthy Moroccan. The design is stunning with tiled paneling, frescoes, and mozarabic designs covering the walls, and intricate carved patterns adorning the ceilings very much like the Alhambra. Its large garden is very well cared for with lush cypresses and palm trees. Today it houses the main tourist office of Almuñécar. Also, La Najarra Palace is often used for important local art exhibits and other events.
