Full description
Delve head first into Granada’s rich history with a guided walking tour of the Alhambra.

Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, the Alhambra is a palace and fortress complex that once was home to the sultans of the Nasrid Dynasty.  Feast your eyes on the spectacular mix of elaborate Islamic art and architecture as your official tour guide gives you the inside scoop on its monumental and historic stature.

Explore 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.

Don’t stop there and see what the Nasrid Palaces have to offer as you visit the Palace of Mexuar, the Palace of Comares, and the Palace of Leones.
