Granada: 5-Hour Alhambra and Islamic Quarter Tour
- Explore the Alhambra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1984
- Take a guided tour of the Albayzin, Granada's Moorish neighborhood
Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, the Alhambra was a courtly city that was home to the sultans of the Nasrid Dynasty. In addition to the ornate palaces of the sultans, your guide will show you the military fortress, where you’ll enjoy panoramic views of the city Granada and the surrounding mountains.
From here you’ll walk to the Generalife, and a local guide will share some of the secrets hidden behind the walls.
In the afternoon you’ll travel back in time once again as you visit the Albayzin, the Moorish neighborhood where you’ll see representations of both Islamic and Christian art. Walk along the narrow streets of the Islamic Quarter, and take in spectacular views of the Alhambra.
Your walk will also take you through the Sacromonte, one of the best-known gypsy neighborhoods in Spain, where locals still live in traditional caves surrounded by nature and the culture and art of Andalucia. Admire the views of the city from a place where art, nature, and heritage are at their most appealing.
