Palacio de Carlos V has two museums worth visiting either before or after the rest of the Alhambra complex. The ground floor Alhambra Museum displays a wonderful collection of furniture, paintings, ceramics and coins from the Nasrid period. The Fine Art Museum upstairs contains excellent religious paintings and sculptures from the 16th and 17th Centuries along with some of David Roberts' 19th-century watercolors. The palace itself dates from a later period than the neighboring Moorish palaces. It was built by Pedro Machuca, for Emperor Carlos V in 1527. Check website for varying dates.
