Aljibe del Rey

Aljibe del Rey

This 17th century Carmen or town house is built on top of the city's largest historical Arab cistern, a reminder of the importance of the system for channelling water in the Arab period.

Built during the 11 century Zirid era, the Aljibe del Rey or Cistern of the King is the largest Moorish cistern in Granada, with a capacity of 300 cubic metres.

Raquel was responsible for the coloured floated plaster and the brick joint restoration of the facade.
