  • Visit the Palace of Charles V and the old crypt of Isabel la Católica

Full description
The tour begins in Plaza Nueva and heads up the beautiful Cuesta de Gomérez to the Puerta de las Granadas, a Renaissance-style gate built in the 16th century under the rule of Spanish King Charles V.   

Stroll through the woods of the Alhambra and past the old gates of the medieval wall of Granada, the Arco de las Orejas, before entering the palace complex through the Puerta de la Justicia. History comes alive with the help of an experienced guide who leads the group through the Palace of Charles V, the Wine Gate, the Gardens of the Old Convent of San Francisco, and the old crypt where Queen Isabel was buried under the beautiful Nasrid plasterworks.  

The second part of the route passes by the Carmen de los Mártires, the largest landscaped palace-house of Granada. Walk down La Cuesta del Rey Chico Boabdil, and learn about the last Sultan who surrendered the Alhambra to the Catholic Monarchs.  

Finally, enjoy a walk down the Paseo de los Tristes along the Darro River–one of the busiest and most beautiful parts of the city, before returning to Plaza Nueva.
