Full description
In the morning, you'll visit the Alhambra, the most visited monument in Spain and one of the best examples of Islamic art in the world. Millions of visitors admire its palaces, gardens, and walls every year. Discover the beauty of this World Heritage Site on a combination tour. The Nasrid dynasty complex, built on the Sabika Hill, is the most impressive fortified complex of Muslim Spain and its walls still stand as witnesses to the golden age of Granada. In the afternoon, you'll visit the Albaicín, Granada’s ancient quarter, and certainly at one time the most beautiful. Walk along its narrow, cobbled streets, and admire the flowering balconies and stunning views of the Moorish fortress. Discover mansions built as residences for the Nasrid nobles during the 14th and 15th centuries. You’ll explore both the monumental Alhambra and the secret and charming Albaicín with your expert guide, stopping for a break for lunch in between. On this tour, enjoy a full day full of Spanish history and art.
