Full description
The forest of the Alhambra has always made a difference to the rest of the city. As is the fact that one's crossing of the Arch of the Pomegranates introduces them to a dream-like place. This is how the Romantics showed you the Alhambreño enclosure during the 19th century through rich images in paintings and writings. Your itinerary consists of a journey around the enclosure (except the interiors of Palacios Nazaríes, Alcazaba, and Generalife). You will visit the area of the of Palace of Carlos V and the Parador de San Francisco among others. During the tour, you will inquire something more about the Invisible Carmen, the “macrabillos”, the first tomb of Isabel la Católica, or the strange visit of an Italian marquise related to the family of Granada-Venegas. Throughout your tour, you can reveal those details that go unnoticed in the visits during the day without the groups of tourists around. With large numbers of tourists it does not allow you to enjoy the silence and harmony of a place that deserves to be visited calmly and carefully.

Increíble espectáculo nocturno. Eva es increíble explicando las cosas. Se nota que sabe mucho de historia. Todo el paseo muy ameno, con encanto y de verdad, recomendado ver de noche Granada. Aprecias detalles que por el día ni los percibes. Un 10 para este tour
