This palace is located in the Huerta del Rey (King's Garden) on the left bank of the Tajo river just over 1km from the old part of Toledo. This was once the site of an old Arab garden where Al-Mamun, taifa king of Toledo from 1043-1075, built his summer home. One of the palace's most interesting features is the luxuriously decorated Salon de la Noria with its enormous garden and central pond and the ornate pavilion with stained-glass windows and gold-encrusted decorative motifs. Nowadays, the palace consists of a reception area divided into three parallel naves with bedrooms at each end linked by a passageway.
