Overview

Explore the areas surrounding the Alhambra and discover the origins of the beautiful hill where it is located on an exclusive private tour. Navigate the ranges from one side of Sabika Hill to the other, along the Alhambra Wall, from the Paseo de los Tristes to the Palace of Carlos V, and down on through the Alhambra Forest ending at the Plaza Nueva.

Learn how the Alhambra maintains its natural splendor and plant life, and how, thanks to its partially underground irrigation system, the palatine city enjoyed self-sufficient water resources and how events and the passage of Napoleon’s troops in 1912 made a dent on the walls of the fortress. Despite the centuries, though, they remain standing as an unchanged paradise.

Cross the imposing Gate of Justice and enjoy a stroll under the chestnut of the Indies, willows, hazelnut and maple trees of the Alhambra planted on the hill in the seventeenth century.

Learn about the kingdom’s Islamic splendor and its transition to cultural admixture, and how, for example, the Church of Santa Maria replaced the Great Mosque of the Alhambra. Discover how the romantic Hispanist Washington Irving came to the kingdom to compile the most famous stories and legends about the Alhambra.

Discover the many corners of Sabika Hill and the most emblematic places that make up this historical place on a tour led by a guide with a vast knowledge of the history of the Alhambra and Granada.
