The Tower of the Pointed Embattlements was used to defend one of the gates of the fortress that guarded the Generalife. This access way leaded to the gate known as Puerta del Arrabal, from where the guards’ barracks were reached. Its interior consists of three main bodies that form a strange yet remarkable arrangement that inspired Washington Irving to write about the rich and powerful Jew, Almamen, who took shelter there while he conceived a plan to wreak vengeance upon the villain who had ravished his daughter.
