An earthly paradise
I invite you to a unique experience of discovering the secrets beyond the magical architecture of the Alhambra and Generalife palaces.
The royal residences of the Nasrid sultans, indeed worthy of the Arabian Nights, constitute an earthly recreation of the Garden of Eden.
As an Arabist and expert in Islamic art, I can "read" the walls of the Alhambra This in-depth knowledge allows me to take the visitor into the atmosphere of the court of the Nasrid Sultans, where the ministers and secretaries were the best poets and scholars of their time.
It is VERY IMPORTANT to make the reservation long before the visit, because a limited number of tickets are sold out every day.
3 hours guided tour Alhambra Palaces and Generalife Gardens.
- The Nasrid Palaces (Comares, the Lions, Partal)
- The Gardens and the Citadel
- The Palaces and the Gardens of the Generalife
- The Palace of Charles the V.
