The remains of the Muslim Walls of Madrid (Muralla Islamica de Madrid) are among the oldest structures in the city. The ruins date back to the 9th century, when Muslims controlled the Iberian peninsula.
King Emir Muhammad I, the ruler of Cordoba at that time, ordered the walls built to fortify the Muslim citadel in the medieval city of Mayrit, as Madrid was then called. What remains of the old walls can be found today in his namesake park, Parque de Emir Mohamed. The former site of the old citadel is now home to the Royal Palace (Palacio Real).
