El Defensor Theatre

Granada developed with a character of clusters of walls and fences to the outside, with an urban grain consisting of narrow alleys and houses as compounds. Both in the Carmen houses and gardens at the Alhambra, the idea of the Islamic garden is present - an oasis-like courtyard shaded from harsh weather, with high walls creating a private sanctuary open to the sky.

These walls, widened to form poche, support both the local symmetry of the interior spaces and the character of the streets and squares of San Matias, in their irregularity and how they have come to be inhabited.
