Full description
Journey back to the days of the Moors in Spain on a guided tour of the Alhambra. Enter the vast complex and hear about its great influence and importance in the history of Spain. Learn about the architectural styles that were used, with Christianity and Islam both having an influence. Marvel at the beautiful Gate of Pomegranates, then walk past the Pillar of Charles V fountain, erected in 1554 along the route that leads to the main entrance of the Alhambra. Explore the Alcazaba fortress, formerly a military precinct and the oldest area of the Alhambra complex. You will also visit the Nasrid Palaces including the Palace of Mexuar, the Palace of Comares, and the Court of the Lions. Finally head to the Generalife, the summer palace of the Nasrid Emirs, home to one of the oldest surviving gardens of the Moors.

      Excellent and worth the money

      Brilliant guide Sabine was very knowledgeable and made the tour interesting and humorous. I’m so glad I took the tour as she had something to tell us about every room And even before we had walked through the gate - knowledge you just wouldn’t get otherwise . Lasted about 3hrs 30 ish and was at a good walking rate to see all. Highly recommended.

      Somos una pareja de Barcelona con una niña pequeña, hemos visitado la Alhambra de mano de una guía, Irene, ha sido una experiencia única, tanto por lo que se visita como por lo bien que lo explica Irene, estamos muy contentos y se lo recomendamos a todo el mundo, una maravilla!! Lo que más nos ha gustado, todo en general, destacar el patio de los leones, impresionante!!
