"Beyond the myth"


In this tour we will concentrate on the essential Granada. We will visit the Palaces of the Alhambra, the most outstanding monument in the city. Each palace is not only worthy of the Arabian Nights, but is also a reflection of the most developed civilitation at that 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.

Our tour of the Alhambra Palaces will last roughly three hours including also the Generalife gardens. Then we will walk down to Granada (15 minutes walk)to visit the Realejo what it was Garnatha Al-Jehud, (Pomegranate of the Jews). There we will talk about the most brilliant Jewish minds of Granada like Yehuda Ibn Tibbon, Samuel Ha Naguid or Moses Ibn Ezra.

We may need to use local transportation (taxi) for part of the tour.
