"The reflection of Paradise"

This tour will take us to the Alhambra Palaces and Generalife Gardens where we will discover the perfect reflection of a Medieval civilisation. Its palaces and gardens will take us back to the heart of Islamic Iberia, where different cultures contributed to what was undoubtedly the most developed society of its time.

I will take you beyond the beauty of the Alhambra's decorations, a beauty that becomes an objective thing in itself.
Geometry, mathematics, philosophy, astronomy, the sciences and especially poetry will be the main materials used to enhance my Alhambra tour for you.

In the Generalife gardens you can explore the evolution of a garden that expresses, like no other, everything that is typically Spanish - the integration of nature and architecture, the concept of the orchard-garden, the fragrances of Al-Andalus and much more.

This tour, like the others, can be customised to start in any city besides Granada ( extra cost)

A Recent Review of this tour

Absolutely superb. My group (aged 18 to 72 ) were in thrall to Federico whose knowledge of history, Islamic art, theology, poetry etc. was enormous. Such a joy to have an academic who can explain complex concepts in an accessible manner and with great humour. Do not attempt to visit Granada without him!
