Full description
If you did not secure an entrance ticket to the Alhambra, this is the perfect opportunity to instead visit the free zones with a guide and learn about the history of the monument. Visit the Palace of Carlos V, which houses the Alhambra Museum and an exclusive collection of Hispano-Muslim and Nasrid art. Marvel at the vast circular courtyard inside this majestic building. Continue on Calle Real to the church of Santa María de la Alhambra, built on the old main mosque. You will also visit the Puerta del Vino, the Alhambra forest, and the old Hamman.

      We were unable to find the tour guide. We got to the puerta de la justicia and Did not find anyone there. We called at 9:55am and no one answered we kept calling for about 30 minutes and no one responded. Terrible service and we wish we could get our money back.
