Qatar’s Emir Acquires Property in Granada

28 July 2019 – Richard D. K. Turner

The emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad al Zani, has just acquired an at least 6,000-m2 carmen, a Granada-style home, overlooking the Alhambra and Sierra Nevada. The emir paid 15.3 million euros for the property, acquiring the house in a personal capacity. The estate has two gardens, several buildings and excellent views.

The carmen belonged to the late businessman Rafael Pérez-Pire, founder of the Puleva dairy company, who acquired the property in 1943. The word carmen comes from the Aramaic kermel, meaning mountain with vineyards and water.
