Description

Discover the grand interiors, majestic architecture, and elegant grounds of one of the most important Moorish palaces in the world. Explore the Alhambra with an expert guide and learn about the history and heritage of this stunning complex and its neighbouring Generalife gardens.

After getting picked up from your hotel, arrive at the Alhambra. One of Spain's greatest architectural wonders, this former fortress was rebuilt and reconditioned by Mohammed Ibn Alhamar in the 11th century and then converted into a royal palace in 1333. The Alhambra's palaces were built for the last Muslim emirs in Spain and the court of the Nasrid dynasty.

Let your expert guide lead you through a maze of opulent halls, filled with intricate dado panels, colonnaded courtyards, and ornamental honeycomb ceilings. Gaze up at the lofty dome in the Hall of the Abencerrajes and enjoy the colourful tiles and inscriptions on the walls of the Hall of the Ambassadors.

Continue to the Generalife gardens, situated next to the Alhambra, where you can stroll past the same tranquil scenes that were enjoyed by the Moorish kings of Granada. Snap photos of colourful flowers, burbling pools, and exotic plants while your guide clues you into the gardens' grand design.

Our guide was excellent at his job. Funny and knowledgeable. The tour itself was just right. Not too long and not too short. Wear comfy shoes. You’ll do plenty of walking and make sure your camera is fully charged . Alhambra is a feast for your eyes.
