Overview

Embark on a tour of medieval Spanish heritage with these splendid visits to Alhambra Palace and El Generalife.


The Alhambra is an exquisite work of art in itself, creating a visual panorama with its typically Nasrid Andalusian features and Arabesques. It is at this palace that the legendary Christopher Columbus received his endorsement to explore the Western side of the world, consequently discovering America. With a convenient skip-the-line access that gives you priority entry to Alhambra, our expert guide will take you on a fascinating trail through the Alcazaba or the fortress, Carlos V’s palace, the spectacular gardens and so much more. As you regale in the Moorish history of the palace, feast your eyes on the picturesque architecture as well as the magnificent views of the city from the hilltop.


The historic journey continues as we head to the Palacio de Generalife, a restored royal villa from the 14th century. A private retreat for a host of Muslim kings, the former residence is home to a stunning array of ornamental gardens, exquisite fountains and the impeccably preserved Moorish fortification - Vermilion Towers. Regale in riveting anecdotes of the manor’s intriguing history as well as the significance of the various outdoor features as you sink into the magnetic nostalgia shrouding this place - a perfect way to get a taste of Spain’s glorious past!
