Full description
Discover the unforgettable Muslim palatial city of Alhambra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which once was home to the sultans of the Nasrid Dynasty. Learn more about its rich history and elaborate, Moorish architecture from a professional guide as you walk around the uniquely well-preserved medieval citadel and explore both the Nasrid Palaces and the Generalife gardens. 

Inside the palatial city, appreciate the artistic beauty of the Court of the Lions as your guide leads you between the marble columns. Renowned for its iconic Muslim decor of blue and yellow tiles, the court is an impressive example of Islamic architectural and engineering splendor.

Next, visit the Palace of Mexuar, the oldest palace in the complex and the Palace of Comares, which was the official residence of the Sultan as well as the location of the throne room. Finally, head to the Palace of Lions, which is considered the peak of Nazari art.
