Corral del Carbón: Our most recommended tours and activities
1. Granada Full Day with Alhambra Palace and Generalife Gardens
Discover the historical city of Granada, land of the Alhambra and the Generalife gardens on this full-day tour. The Moors built Alhambra in the 13th century. Charles V, ruler of the Holy Roman Empire from 1516, built the court of Charles V in the 16th century. The Generalife gardens are a well-deserved UNESCO World Heritage Site, built by Mohammed III in the 14th century. Once you have finished here, enjoy a guided tour to the historical city center to explore the surroundings of the Royal Chapel, the Alcaiceria, Corral del Carbon, the Cathedral and more. You'll also get the chance to wander off and find some traditional tapas.
We were disappointed with the multilinguality of the guidances. We expected pure English. Now German dominated.

What people are saying about Corral del Carbón
Did not disappoint
After learning of the Alhambra back in my high school days, it had always been on my bucket list. It doesn't disappoint! The tour was made even better by our wonderful tour guide, Maria Lopez Garcia. She has a true passion for the history, architecture and beauty of the entire palace. Her knowledge is astounding, and I believe she could have expanded the time of the tour by hours and still kept us intrigued about its history. Maria, we thank you so much.
Everything was great, the guide very knowledgeable but felt a little rushed. Granada visit was great too with enough time to eat and have a little look around as a taster. Transfer coach very comfortable with Air-con and a stop between Granada and Malaga. Thank you.
The visit on Saturday 7 at 9:30 was well worth it. The guide who accompanied us from 10. Very professional and very good all his explanations. A very nice group and a highly recommended visit
