Full description
Discover the beauty of this World Heritage Site on a private tour. Meet the local guide at the main Alhambra entrance and you will receive your skip-the-line admission tickets.

With priority access you’ll be able to immediately immerse yourself in history. For 2.5 hours your guide will lead you along the streets and through the palaces, courtyards and gardens of the Alhambra. You’ll learn about the history of the monument, typical Moorish architecture and the lives of the Nasrid sultans who lived in these palaces.

Discover the Nasrid Palaces, the former residence of the Moorish sultans. Enjoy a walk through mythical places of the Royal Complex such as the Palacio de Comares, Patio de los Arrayanes, Salón de los Embajadores and the Patio de los Leones with its famous Fountain of Lions, the symbol of the Alhambra.

Visit the Renaissance-style Palace of Charles V, which appears at great contrast with the Islamic architecture of the site.

Lastly you’ll have a chance to admire the Generalife Gardens, a summer residence of the Muslim kings of Granada and one of the oldest surviving Moorish gardens.

The gardens have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, along with the Alhambra Palace and the Albayzín.
