The Palace

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.


Given its privileged location in the famous El Sacromonte neighbourhood, we are able to enjoy beautiful views of the Alhambra. Without a doubt, one of the main reasons why brides and grooms and companies have chosen this place to hold their events.

The Palacio de los Córdova is a magical place where you can celebrate any kind of event both indoors and out. Within the estate, there are some beautiful cypress gardens where you will find the walk known as “the romantic”. Do you dare discover why?
