Three religions coexisting in one city
Let me take you to discover Granada, one of the most important cities in Europe during the middle ages, founded in 1013 by the Ziriids, and controlled for centuries by the Nasrids. Thousands of people living in a chosen place where Muslims, Jews and Christians used to coexist.
Three main areas, The Albayzín, where everything started, considered to be the former Muslim city of Granada, then the Realejo, which is the place where the Jewish People lived, located under the Alhambra and finally the City Center, a place where is possible to find most of the Catholic legacy of Granada.
I start at the fountain in the middle of Plaza Nueva. I make a historical introduction and after it, I take a taxi to go to the highest point of the Albayzín, where little by little we start to walk down on our way to the city center, getting lost thru the history and time, before visiting the Christian area. I stop in the former Jewish Quarter called Realejo.
During the visit I leave some free time for having a break, the tour lasts a little bit over three hours including the stop.
I recommend to wear comfortable shoes, because we walk on red clay pathways, cobble-stone floors and also asphalt. Even we find some steps and slopes during the visit, but nothing complicated.
Meeting Location + Tour Duration
Meeting location: I like to meet visitors at the fountain in Plaza Nueva. Another option if you prefer is to pick you up in your hotel or a specific address that you requested.
End location: I finish the tour where the Cathedral is, that basically is the real city center, but if you prefer to go somewhere I can show you how or going with you for example to Plaza Nueva, where the tour starts.
Duration: 3 hours 30 min.
This is primarily a walking tour. If required, I can use a taxi to meet at your hotel and take you to the Alhambra, comfortable and fast. This is included in the price.
Estimated Local Cash Needed
20 EURO - I recommend to have some water during the visit. We can also stop for a drink or snack. Probably, we find some souvenirs shops in our way to the city center.
I am a licensed guide, and have no restrictions.

Guillermo is a Granada native, and his enthusiasm for its history is evident. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, and saw several things / visited many places that we would not have found on our own.
