Casa del Chapiz (Albaicín)
It is a set of two Moorish houses whose origins date back to the fourteenth century. Its architecture and decoration has Christian and Muslim elements, both buildings communicate with each other by a plaster arch, due to the reuse of arches and columns of ancient buildings, it is believed that it was part of the Islamic palace Dar al-Bayda. They are located in the Albaicín neighbourhood at the confluence of the slope of Chapiz with the Sacromonte road, having been declared as a cultural interest. Since 1932 it has been the headquarters of the School of Arab Studies, whose work focuses, on the one hand, on the study of Andalusian history and texts and, on the other hand, on Islamic archeology and architecture. From the Casa del Chapiz, the views towards the Alhambra are astonishing.
