The palace of Charles V, holy Roman emperor in 1527, was inserted in the Alhambra within the Nasrid fortifications. after falling into disrepair for centuries and the buildings being occupied by squatters, the Alhambra was rediscovered in the 19th century by European scholars and travellers, with restorations commencing.
