Full description
Begin your tour by meeting your guide at the entrance of the Generalife garden in the city of Alhambra. Wander around the royal gardens, as your guide gives you an introduction to the city constructed by the Nazari Dynasty in the 9th century. Located on a strategic point, the city served as both a palatial refuge for the sultans of the day, as well as a tactical defensive structure.

Visit the palaces of the city of Alhambra, where you will find remnants of Muslim art, as well as the jewels of the city. As you explore within the red walls of the city, your guide will give you a detailed account of the story of the site, as well as an account of the history of Islam in Spain.
