What to expect

A walk around the Alhambra, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a must for every visitor in Granada.

This visit will be an extraordinary experience as you take in views of the attractive and elaborate rooms, the monumental and historic position and the charm of its exquisitely detailed Islamic art and architecture.

You’ll have an official tour guide and expert interpreter of Granada’s heritage, who will guide you through every part that forms the 'red fortress'. Your guide will also answer any questions that you may have about this spectacular monument.

The tour itinerary includes:

  • The Alcazaba Fortress: the most antique area of the Alhambra’s complex. In the past, it was a military precinct
  • Nasrid Palaces: including its many rooms, the enchanting the Palace of Mexuar, Palace of Comares and Palace of Leones, a perfect example of Nasrid art
  • The Generalife: the sultan’s summer palace, situated at East of the Alhambra and surrounded by wide gardens filled with a great variety of vegetation, framed by a beautiful Islamic landscape

NOTE: the starting time of the tour is subject to change. It is necessary to call the tour operator 24 hours before the tour to confirm when it starts. The visiting order of the different areas will be determined by the hour of entrance for the Nasrid Palaces. On occasion, the Alhambra Trust may alter the order of the visit and restrict access to certain areas.
