"The only one Arab-Medieval Castle in Europe. The monument the most visited in Spain!"


The Alhambra Palace and the Generalife Gardens declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984 is the monument the most visited in the whole Spain and is among the top five in Europe.

Let me show you this jewel of medieval muslim art in Spain, in a beautiful walk in which we will discover each of the magical corners that enclose these palaces, as well as the wonderful views over the ancient city of Granada. We will see how the muslim builders of Al Andalus applied all the knowledge they possessed about mathematics, geometry or architecture.

In the Gardens of the Generalife we will talk about the importance of water and the ingenious hydraulic system that the Muslims of the 13th century invented to distribute the water throughout the palaces and gardens. Through the walls of these Nasrid palaces built between the 13th and 15th centuries we will feel the history and the legend.

The Alhambra is an open book, let's read it together.

A Recent Review of this tour

Conchi was really knowledgeable and easy to talk to. We were over 30 minutes late for a tour booked late the day before so she had to work hard to find tickets etc, but she was happy and positive the whole tour. She was a great guide whom we would happily use again and recommend.
