The location in the historic city of Granada is both special and nostalgic; It was a royal platform, opened in 1910 and then altered to its current form in 1929, where it was used to watch the horse race taking place at “El Sabq Street” during three seasons per year, more frequently in the winter, attended by kings and princes. It’s worth mentioning that the design of the Egyptian city of Granada came in the Andalusian style, specifically the Spanish city of Granada, and it comprises a group of stands overlooking a large square dedicated to horse races; the town was decorated with a tower with a spiral staircase and a dome.
In this unique building, many amazing films were recorded in it, including the movie “Leabat El Set, “the movie “Maleesh Gherik,” and the movie “Ward El Gharam.”
