Overview

Discover hidden parts of Granada you never knew existed! Enjoy a walking tour through the hill known as Cerro del Sol and take in stunning views of the Alhambra, the Albaicín and Jesús del Valle.

Learn the history of the site as you stroll through the beautiful scenery and winding paths, following the course of the Acequia del Tercio until it goes underground at the romantic lookout point over the Alhambra.

Take in stunning views of the Alhambra, the city and the valley of the Darro River from the Castle of Santa Elena, a small Nasrid fortress. Explore an area with lush greenery and a small waterfall that connects the Acequia del Tercio, and then zigzag down until reaching the mythical Fountain of Avellano, the site where nineteenth-century romantics like Ángel Ganivet met at sunset.

The tour ends at Paseo de los Tristes, then back to the city after the tour.
