A19th-century palace and a dramatic modern building form the two parts of Hospes Palacio de los Patos. An urban retreat, the palace retains original details, such as mosaics, trompe l'oeil ceilings, and a grand marble staircase; while the alabaster-clad building next door is a vision in white. From cuisine to landscaping, authenticity and originality were the guiding principles for creating a sensory experience that brings the rich cultural history of Granada into the future.ARCHITECTURE & DESIGNHospes Palacio de los Patios combines dramatic classical design with equally stunning modern architecture. The palace building, with its striking façade and wrought-iron balcony, features carefully renovated original elements. These are complemented beautifully by the modern structure, which is connected to the older building via an underground walkway and ingeniously covered with water tanks. Highly contemporary design features are accompanied by sleek and sophisticated alabaster-white interiors.
