Travel through the centuries on a 2.5-hour walking tour of the most charismatic quarters of Granada and learn the history of the emblematic Albaicin and Sacromonte districts.

See the old city walls and gates of the Albaicin illuminated for the night and pass beautiful floodlit palaces and mosques. Wander down the atmospheric narrow alleys of the medieval Moorish quarter and be amazed by the white houses with their flowered balconies.

This was an amazing experience and all credit goes to the excellent guide Anna. She made the experience personalised s we had only five of us. She had vast historical knowledge of both the areas. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Granada.

Beautiful sunset sights of the Alhambra

Sergio, our guide was very knowledgeable, kind and enthousiastic. We learned plenty about these neighbourhood’s history and meanwhile we had a nice hike. Lots of stairs to do, but waterfountains everywhere (Sergio will explain) and little pause moments.
