Discovering the "last frontier": a blend of cultures and savors.
During this 2 day tour, you will explore the magnificent palaces and gardens of the Alhambra, the historic center of Granada, enchanting white-washed villages and castles scattered along the border of two worlds.
Granada and its sultanate were the last strongholds of al-Andalus, the Muslim Spain. They reflect a blend of cultures and savors, revealed in the Alhambra citadel, the historic center of Granada and a series of fascinating white-washed villages dominated by Medieval fortresses surrounded verdant olive groves.
Art, history and a blend of cultures and savors, are awaiting you in this essential two-day trip in Granada, off the beaten track.
