In this neighborhood, included in the World Heritage List by UNESCO in 1994, there are still more than eighty of these houses, which constitute a complex of great architectural and historical value, although many still have a precarious state of conservation.
Moorish houses are the houses built or renovated by the Moors of Granada in the 16th century. These houses maintained the basic characteristics of Nasrid residential architecture from the 13th-15th centuries: distribution around a patio, facades with no decoration and openings, except for the entrance door, and a corner access system to guarantee privacy. Although most had two floors, the patio was the center of family life, which took place mainly on the ground floor, where there was also a hall, a latrine and a small kitchen.
