Itinerary

  • Meet your guide at the start point of the tour and head to the magnificent Alhambra Palace set against the backdrop of the snow-capped Sierra Nevada Mountains.

    Explore the palace-fortress of the Nasrid Sultans, the rulers of the last Muslim kingdom in Spain, and see the distinct amalgamation of Spanish and Islamic architecture and design. Enter the vast complex and get acquainted with its history while your guide leads you from one chamber to another as well as to the beautiful fountain terrace.

    You will be awed by the intricate geometric designs skillfully produced in marble, glazed tile and alabaster.

    Next, your guide will take you to the summer retreat of the Moorish kings, the Generalife. Stroll through the dramatic gardens, said to have been inspired by the Koranic description of Paradise. Deeply evocative, you will be absorbed into the allure of the tall columnar cypress trees, orange trees, oleanders, the tranquil pools and tinkling fountains.
