The Madrasah Palace, one of the most emblematic buildings of Granada, has its origines in 13th century. Rebuilt in the 16th century into a baroque palace, this former Koran school and later town hall, now belongs to the Universisty of Granada.
In the 2010 restoration intervention, Artisan Stucco was responsible for restoring the plaster from scratch with only the original frescoes conserved.
The base plaster, made of lime putty and local calcium carbonate sands and mixed on site, was applied to regulate all the brick walls in thicknesses that varied from 1 to 5 cm. The base was then covered with a finish consisting of a three layer system fresco plaster made of aged lime putty and different grain sized marble sands.
