The Carmen de los Cipreses is one of the most precious and oldest palaces in Albayzín and is declared a Site of Cultural Interest in the category of Monuments.
Built in 1780, its layout faithfully shows the typical form of Carmens of Granada; a main house on the highest point of the property and various gardens below forming terraces following the slope of the terrain with an orchard located on the lowest point.
Renovated in 2006, Raquel plastered the patio and rooms with a base plaster and a two layers fresco finish in green and beige. She was also responsible for the base plaster and the tiling with lime putty of the hand painted tile plinth. For the exterior of the building she design the floated plaster of the facade and the lime wash of the tower.
