The royal palace, which hadn't been completed until the 20th century, can be seen as a symbol of local triumph of Christianity in Grenada. The circular patio with two lines of columns provides an amazing atmosphere for a variety of cultural events. No wonder that the annual International Festival of Music and Dance of Granada also takes place here.
