Overview

No visit to Granada would be without a visit to the Alhambra. This beautiful palace complex is the culmination of centuries of Islamic art and architecture in Moorish Spain, the flowering of a unique culture. This guided tour in the company of an expert in the history and artistic and cultural heritage of the Alhambra will really bring this stunning building to life. Then explore Granada for yourself with our audio-guide tourist navigator.

The Alhambra is located on a hill overlooking the city. It was originally built as a fortress in 899 before being converted into a Royal Palace by Yusuf I, Sultan of Granada. Your knowledgeable guide will show you around the old fortress, known as La Alcazaba, the Royal Palace Complex with its Harem, the Court of the Myrtles with its large pond used for cooling the buildings in the summer heat, the magnificent Hall of the Ambassadors and the breathtakingly beautiful Court of the Lions and the Hall of the Abencerrajes. We’ll also visit the Generalife Palace and Gardens used as a summer palace and retreat by the Nazrid emirs of Granada. Admire the Patio de la Acequia with its long pools framed by flowerbeds, fountains, colonnades and pavilions, and the Sultana's Garden, thought to be inspired by the style of mediaeval Persian Gardens.

Then explore Granada at your leisure with our audio-guide tourist navigator system. This handy browser provides you all you need to know to complement your stay in this magical city with information on culture, nature, monuments, tapas tours and walking and driving itineraries. The GPS will help you to plan your route and to learn more about what you are seeing. You can access each location in different formats, viewing information on prices, schedule, traveller reviews etc. giving you complete freedom to explore and learn all about Granada at your own speed.
