Full description
Journey back to the days of the Moors in Spain on a guided tour of the Alhambra. Enter the vast complex and hear about its great influence and importance in the history of Spain. Learn about the architectural styles that were used, with Christianity and Islam both having an influence. Marvel at the beautiful Gate of Pomegranates, then walk past the Pillar of Charles V fountain, erected in 1554 along the route that leads to the main entrance of the Alhambra. Explore the Alcazaba fortress, formerly a military precinct and the oldest area of the Alhambra complex. You will also visit the Nasrid Palaces including the Palace of Mexuar, the Palace of Comares, and the Court of the Lions. Finally head to the Generalife, the summer palace of the Nasrid Emirs, home to one of the oldest surviving gardens of the Moors.

      Our guide, Ana was absolutely amazing! Ana knew about everything and gave such in depth information about every aspect of the Alhambra and it’s surroundings. Very clear, concise and was always happy to go through wider information/ questions. Amazing English spoken. The tour had 10 people in the group, which was small compared to others with 15-25 in them, so it was more personable. Took around 3 hours but you saw everything & it was done in the most perfect way, ending with the Nastrid Palaces which were so beautiful. Would 100% recommend. Also a lot better going with a guide as I can imagine it would be easy to get lost & not give you the opportunity to see everything fully.

      I took part in a 3.5-hour guided tour in English with a very knowledgeable and pleasant guide (Ana). I got a lot out of the guided tour. I highly recommend.
