Arab Wall: Dating from the 9th century, these elaborate fortifications were built to protect the Moorish settlement of Magerit or Mayrit that moved to the left bank of the Manzanares River. They stand today as reminders of the first city limits. They originally surrounded an area of around 4 hectares, around a small castle or fort located where today’s Royal Palace stands. Other palaces and castles were also built over the following centuries, until the present-day’s marvellous Eastern Palace or Palacio del Oriente as the Royal Palace is known.
