At present, the Palacio de los Córdova is located on the cuesta del Chapiz, past the Promenade of the Sad Ones, but it was originally built on the Placeta de las Descalzas, commissioned by Luis Fernández de Córdoba, the Ensign Major of Granada.
After three centuries, following its acquisition in the early twentieth century by Ricardo Marín Flores, he decided to demolish it to build the Teatro Gran Capitán on the site. (Other sources say that the building was already practically in ruins due to the war against France in the nineteenth century)
Almost half a century later, the Duke of Montellano, following the original plans, ordered the reconstruction of the building on the site where it stands today, by the river Darro. Today it is the headquarters of the Municipal Archive and permits holding events both inside the palace and in its beautiful gardens.
