Your guide will take you into the Nasrid Palaces, the old Moorish palaces, where you can get up close to the iconic Islamic decorative details. Enjoy the colorful geometric tiling and various courtyard water features, including the infamous Patio de los Leones. Architecture and art fans will enjoy the iconic Islamic and Mudéjar styles in the grounds.

We had a great tour with Guillermo, an interesting, very well informed, friendly guide. His knowledge and enthusiasm for his city, the Alhambra and the history of both was extensive. The pace was good, and our guide was very considerate; asking if people wanted to wait in a comfortable place while he showed others an area; there was a break; he answered questions and offered assistance. I think the Alhambra would have been overwhelming without a guide.
