Patio de la Acequia
Patio de la Acequia translates to Patio of the Irrigation Ditch and is amongst the most important parts of the Generalife. An ornamental addition to the main canal that brings irrigation water from the Alhambra, the Patio de la Acequia is a beautiful blend of Islamic and Spanish style of architecture. The patio connects the lower and upper gardens and includes a high pavilion that doubles as a vantage point from which the patio and gardens beyond can be observed. It was designed as an interior garden, with the exception of the small lookout point on the west.
