Full description
Journey back to the days of the Moors in Spain on a guided tour of the Alhambra. Enter the vast complex and hear about its great influence and importance in the history of Spain. Learn about the architectural styles that were used, with Christianity and Islam both having an influence. Marvel at the beautiful Gate of Pomegranates, then walk past the Pillar of Charles V fountain, erected in 1554 along the route that leads to the main entrance of the Alhambra. Explore the Alcazaba fortress, formerly a military precinct and the oldest area of the Alhambra complex. You will also visit the Nasrid Palaces including the Palace of Mexuar, the Palace of Comares, and the Palace of Leones. Finally head to the Generalife, the summer palace of the Nasrid Emirs, home to one of the oldest surviving gardens of the Moors. Admire the different courtyards with their long pools framed by flowerbeds, fountains, colonnades, and pavilions.

      Our guide Hanna was very knowledgeable and pleasant. It was great to skip the queues. The only downside was that the tour felt a little rushed. Also rather than a pin drop on a map it would be much easier if the meeting point was described as outside the cafe beside the entrance to the wcs.

      Storslåede haver, fæstninger og paladser samlet på ét sted. Kom I god tid - det kan være lidt svært at finde. Dog stor parkeringsplans. Køb rundtur med guide - så får man langt mere ud af det - og springer køerne over. En rundtur tager ca 3 timer. Vi var afsted sidst i Oktober og temperaturen var kun 14°C kl 10.30, hvor vi startede ud. Så medbring også lidt varmt tøj udenfor sommeren (hvor det til gengæld kan være ret varmt 40-45°C. Gå ned til Granada efterfølgende - vær dog opmærksom på, at turen tilbage er "meget opad", så bær ikke på for meget. Tag evt bus eller taxa op til Alhambra / parkeringsområdet. Mvh

      Would recommend tour because you get to skip all the line ups at each entrance (there are many). Tour guide gave a good general overview and always asked if we had any questions and offered to take some family photos for us. DO NOT forget to bring your passport as you are asked to show it a number of times throughout tour.
