Get transported to the magical world of age-old Arabia when you visit UNESCO World Heritage Site; the Alhambra Palace and Gardens. This hilltop royal residence is one of the finest examples of Moorish architecture in the world. Marvel at the carved cedar-wood, cupolas, ornate ceilings, frothy stuccowork, and exquisite mosaics. Enjoy the cool marble, tranquil pools, tinkling fountains, and the beautifully designed pavilions and promenades set against the stunning backdrop of the snow-capped Sierra Nevada Mountains.

The tour takes you inside the Alhambra Palace with an expert guide to accompany, providing in-depth view of the history and culture behind this architectural marvel. Your questions and queries will be answered by the friendly guide.

Tour the three main parts of the Alhambra Palace:

- The Royal Palace's interior is lavishly decorated. Surfaces are adorned with intricate geometric designs skillfully executed in marble, glazed tile and alabaster.

- The Alcazaba is the Alhambra Palace’s original fortress. You will be able to walk up the steps to the watchtower for some splendid panoramas of Granada.

- The Generalife was the summer retreat for the Moorish kings. Here you will stroll through the spectacular gardens, said to have been inspired by the Koranic description of Paradise.
