Full description
Walking around the Alhambra’s citadel immerses you in a green landscape filled with stupendous views, beautiful paths, and of course, fascinating history. The Alhambra is a palace and fortress complex that was home to Nasrid sultans and Christian kings like Charles V. Learn about what the earliest Sabika of the sultans was like. Why did Charles V fall in love with Granada? Our expert guides will provide you with the answers to these questions, which lie hidden within the hill. During this experience, the expert guides will take you from one site to another on Sabika Hill, stopping at the important monumental areas. They will delve into aspects of the “Alhambra Medina,” and you will learn about the plant life on the hill bordering the edges of the wall, along with the water, land, city gates, and defensive system. You will also learn about the importance of the heritage site “Christian Alhambra."
