Full description
In this tour, you will get to see just why the Alhambra is the most visited monument of Spain. Indeed it is probably the most important architectural structure of the Middle Ages and the finest example of Islamic art left in the Western world. Let yourself be taken in by its reddish walls (in Arabic, «qa'lat al-Hamra'» means Red Castle), the speaking walls covered with beautiful and extremely intricate ceramics and plasterwork, through which you will appreciate why the Alhambra is described as Granada's - and Europe's - love letter to Moorish culture. This is a day-trip from Seville to visit not only the Alhambra but also the old Moorish city of Granada, and the Albayzín quarter, declared UNESCO World Heritage site since 1994.
