"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

I am so glad we booked Federico to take use through the Alhambra and Generalife - he was very knowledgeable from so many different aspects - and really brought the place alive for us. We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage daughters, and he even won over the teenagers! We heard all about history, geometry, poetry, science, architecture, earthquake resistance - Federico asked what our interests were - and picked out the most interesting information for us. Highly recommended.
