Itinerary

  • This special tour of Granada is the perfect time for photographs, as you explore the city during twilight.

    The Albayzín and Sacromonte quarters of the city are both World Heritage sites, and are some of the most colourful areas of Granada. Your tour guide will take you through Granada's winding streets while explaining the history and culture of the city, making sure you visit:

    San Crístobal Viewpoint: Also called Mirador de San Cristoba, this vantage point gives you a spectacular view of the entire city, including a nice look at Alhambra. From here, the city will seem to glow beneath you; this is a perfect photo opportunity, especially at sunset.

    San Nicolás Viewpoint: Perhaps a more popular vantage point than the San Crístobal Viewpoint, the San Nicolás Viewpoint offers a panorama of the city, filled with trees and mountains. Once again, this is a perfect opportunity to capture the beauty of Granada just as the sun is setting.

    Gipsy Sacromonte: The Gypsies have inhabited the Sacromonte quarter of Granada ever since the arrival of the Catholic Monarchs to Spain. This area of Granada is famous for its caves, as well as Zambra flamenco dancing. The winding streets and colourful decorations of this quarter reflect its rich culture and heritage.

    Paseo de los Tristes: Officially named Andres Manjon, this path got its nickname from the funeral processions that used to pass along it. Now, this quiet path is a great way to see the city, offering views of all different parts of Granada.

    Carrera del Darro: This charming romantic street runs parallel to the river Darro, creating beautiful water-filled vistas of the city. Often busy, especially at night, this street is considered a must-see for all visitors of Granada.

    Plaza Nueva: This square marks the end of the tour. Home to many restaurants and shops, Plaza Nueva is the perfect place to relax!

    After your tour ends, you'll be treated to a drink and tapa in Plaza Nueva, before making your way back to your hotel.
