Description

Be transported back in time to when the Moors inhabited Southern Spain and visit the lasting landmark of the majestic Alhambra. On this half-day walking tour you take in the sights at the stunning Generalife Gardens, the imposing Alcazaba Fortress, and the serene Palace of Comares.

Meet your guide at the Alhambra box office and bypass the line of this highly frequented monument. You stroll through the original Alcazaba, or citadel, as well as the additions built centuries later, listening to the intriguing history and legends from your expert tour leader. Admire the fascinating Islamic architecture and artistry of the Nasrid Palaces, built for the last reigning Muslim dynasty in the region.

Inside the Nasrid complex make your way to the Palace of Charles V, a Renaissance construction commanded by the Roman Emperor. Adjacent is the lush Generalife, which translates to “Architect's Garden.” Enjoy the colorful flowerbeds and flowing fountains at this attraction known for its traditional Persian garden style. Also along the Royal Road you have the opportunity to venture to a partially preserved mosque bath that now serves as a museum.

I enjoyed a wonderful tour around the fantastic Alhambra Palace. We were lucky to have good weather in late November, but it was Marta, our tour guide, who made the day. Although she was struggling with a cold, the tour lasted even longer than scheduled, at three and a quarter hours. Within that time, she brought the place to life, shared its history and provided one of the best tours that I have joined. She also advised that we visit the Royal Chapel, a place that I would not have been to, given my limited time in Granada, and one that I am so glad that I didn’t miss. Many thanks for a fabulous day.
