Manuel Gómez-Moreno González and Luis de Mármol suggest that they were built during the reign of Muhammad I, the founder of the Nasrid dynasty; however, the structures on the perimeter of the site, which resemble those of the Alcazaba, date back to the 11th century.
At this point in time the site consists of three towers, the tallest being the one in the middle, and an artillery bastion from the Christian era. On the interior perimeter are the visible remains of numerous Muslim tombstones, leading to speculation that the towers were reinforced by the Christians.
An important bastion in the defence of the area, the Crimson Towers (Torres Bermejas) is linked by a wall to the Alhambra Alcazaba.
The Festival of Music and Dance of Granada in 1952 provided an impetus to the building of a theatre in the historical-artistic monuments complex.
