"Walking through the Islamic, Jewish and Christian History of Granada


This tour is a perfect complement to your visit to The Alhambra Palaces.

At the Albaicin, the hill where the origin of Granada takes place, we will get lost in the maze of narrow streets, heritage of the old islamic Granada. We'll see "Carmen" the houses with gardens, the "Aljibes" old cisterns and the well-known Viewpoint of "Mirador de San Nicolás".
Then will arrive by the river Darro, walking in one of the nicest street in Spain with lovely house-palaces and bridges.

At the City Center we'll see the Christian area after the Reconquest in 1492, such as the Cathedral or the Royal Chapel where the Catholic Monarchs are buried with some of their relatives. Downtown we could still see more Muslim remains as the "Alcaiceria" the Silk Market, or an XIVth Nasrid Caravansarie(Al-Funduk).

We'll visit "El Realejo", the old Jewish quarter known as "Gharnata al-Yahud" nowadays an Andalusian neighbourhood with plenty of nice squares and houses, to understand our way of life.

Ask for the Alhambra Tours.
