Full description
Don’t miss this opportunity to visit the most important historical sites of the city of Granada accompanied by an experienced guide. Start your tour in Plaza Bib-Rambla, a square which used to be the entrance to the city. Here you’ll see where the “Gate of Ears” used to stand and learn the story behind this name.   The next point on your tour is the Alcaicería, an Arabian marketplace full of narrow and winding walkways. Pick up some souvenirs, or just marvel at the vast variety of goods available, including gorgeous silks and fragrant spices.   Continuing on, your next stop will be the highlight of your day: the Royal Chapel, where the marble tombs of historical royals are located. Here lie Isabella and Ferdinand, alongside their daughter Joanna I and son-in-law Phillip the Handsome.   Finally, head to the historic center of town to see La Madraza, the first Islamic university of Granada. Built in the 14th century, this splendid work of architecture is still part of the city’s University.

    The visit was good ... The correct guide ...

    The visit was fine .. I lacked curious anecdotes ... The helmets were not heard well ... As a point I will say that I would recommend at a general level that some mirrors be installed on top of the mausoleums of the Catholic kings to be able to see them from above as they are details are not appreciated

    Realizamos la visita con Julio. Muy atento, profesional y cercano. El recorrido se hizo muy ameno e interesante con sus detalladas explicaciones. Nos ha gustado mucho el detalle de que preguntase e interactuase con nosotras acerca de los diferentes temas históricos porque te hace pensar y reflexionar más allá de la explicación. Excelente experiencia y nos vamos con ganas de repetir. Muy recomendado.
