Description

Visit Alhambra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and get to know the last historically Arab city in Spain. This tour takes you back 600 years, when this fortress was reconstructed and converted into a magnificent royal palace by the Sultan of Granada in 1333.

After convenient pickup from your hotel, take a drive towards Granada and arrive at Alhambra in Al-Andalus, also known as Muslim Spain. The complex, originally constructed as a small fortress in 889 AD, sits atop a hill and offers sweeping views of nearby villages and the jagged Sierra Nevada mountain range in the distance. Upon arrival, your guide regales you with stories about the site's construction and transformation over the centuries.

Hop out of your vehicle and enter the sprawling complex, gazing up at its sheer stone walls designed with contemporary Abassid architecture. This former fortress was converted into a palace in the 14th century, so you're greeted by delicate stonework and ornate ceilings with each chamber you enter.

Step into the Royal Complex and see the quarters that Charles V once called home, and then wander the former sultan's recreational area and lush Moorish gardens. Hear more stories about Alhambra's origins as a military fortress before its transformation into an extravagant hilltop palace before settling back into your coach for a relaxing ride back to your hotel.

Our guide was fantastic and provided a real insight into life in the palace and also more generally the history of Spain. Had a wonderful day and really enjoyed chatting with our guide and walking around the palace and gardens which are fabulous. Would certainly recommend.

It was great experience but very very expensive. I would rather buy ticket in advance and take train or bus there.
