Full description

You will start in Plaza Nueva, admiring one of the constructions that changed the physiognomy of the city the most. You will also astonish yourself with the Real Chancillería, which was the highest court of appeal of the Corona de Castilla. Follow that, admire the Plaza Nueva, the church of Santa Ana, and the Pilar del Toro, each of them being a part of one of the most important places of today’s Granada. You will walk down the Darro riverbed to see the old Al-Funduq (Corral del Carbón), one of the few Muslim buildings of commercial use that are still preserved. Following that, stroll through its streets, visiting the old silk market where thousands of stalls will intoxicate your senses with their colors and smells. Later on you will visit the Madraza, founded by Yusuf I in 1349. You will then proceed to enter inside the Capilla Real, where the Reyes Católicos chose to be buried in order to leave a permanent reminder of the hard work they had to do to win this city back. Towards the latter end of your tour you will visit the cathedral, which began to be built by Emperor Charles V.

Stephanie is an excellent guide! Five other in a party registered for the tour never showed up and she tried to call them several times. Nevertheless, she gave Said, from Turkey and myself, a delightfully informative tour of everything, including the Mosque, Royal Chapel and Cathedral. For any American who’s taken a Western Civilization class, this is a must while in Granada! I highly recommend it and Stephanie to you! It was especially poignant during Holy Week for Christians…a bonus! Don (70 and counting and still traveling solo across Europe as in college but at a little more relaxed pace) from Atlanta, GA.
