Overview

A taste of Arabia amid the Andalusian hills, the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Alhambra Palace and Gardens, is one of the finest examples of Moorish architecture in the world. When leaving from Granada, look up to the citadel of the Alhambra that stands guard over the Andalusian town. Leaving in the morning allows you to explore this Moorish beauty with lesser crowds.

To give you an idea about the Alhambra Palace complex, it is divided into three parts: the Royal Palace, the palace of the Nasrid Sultans, the Gardens of Generalife, and the old fortress of Alcazaba.

An expert guide will take you around the palace and show you the best parts like the carved cedar-wood, cupolas, ornate ceilings, frothy stuccowork, and exquisite mosaics. We can go on and on about the cool marble, tranquil pools, tinkling fountains, and the beautifully designed pavilions and promenades set against the stunning backdrop of the snow-capped Sierra Nevada Mountains. See it all and listen to fascinating stories of whirling dervishes, Muslim prophets, Arabic rulers and Spanish conquerers.

You will also visit the summer retreat of the Moorish kings, Generalife dotted with exquisite gardens, said to have been inspired by the Koranic description of Paradise. Evocative and surreal, you will be absorbed into the allure of the tall columnar cypress trees, orange trees and oleanders.
