Despite some reservation difficulties to obtain an entrance ticket to the Alhambra site, the organization offering the "cicerone" guides helped us a lot in our efforts. Our guide "Beatriz" was wonderful, very patient (for the photos!!!) and was a precious French-speaking guide to discover all the charms of this majestic and impressive site. Thanks again to our guide for organizing this beautiful visit and for these wonderful memories.

Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We learned so much! It would not have been such a rewarding experience if we had visited the Alhambra on our own.
