Full description
Discover the architectural treasure of Granada on a guided tour of the Alhambra complex. Marvel at the ornate palaces of the Nasrid rulers and see the beautiful courtyards and gardens of the Generalife overlooking the snow-capped mountains of the Sierra Nevada.

Learn about life in the Middle Ages as the city and its main monuments are brought to life before your eyes. See the main palaces of the Nasrid rulers, including the Mexuar Hall and Comares Palace, where the king lived surrounded by the Court of the Myrtles.

See the ruins of the medina and Renaissance renovations from the days of King Charles V. Then, make your way to the medieval gardens of the Generalife, built for the Nasrid rulers as a summer palace and linked to the Alhambra by a covered walkway across the ravine that divides them.

Stroll in the beautiful gardens, where highlights include the long pool of the Patio de la Acequia, framed by fountains, flowerbeds, colonnades and pavilions.
