The Moorish reign in Spain spanned more than 700 years, and the Alhambra is considered by many to be the crowning acheivement of the Moorish rule: an awe-inspiring fortress and a series of palaces that are unmatched for their detail, beauty and heritage. A must-see on anyone’s Spain bucket list, a visit to the Alhambra is an unforgettable experience!
Some of the highlights of this tour include:
- The Genaralife Gardens. Originally the “quiet place” for the kings of the Alhambra to go, with private gardens which have been turned into spectacular flourishing displays of flowers and fountains.
- The 12th-century Nazarene Palaces of the Moorish kings. The highlight of the Alhambra, these palaces hold the secrets of one of the most glorious times in Granada’s history, as well as an incredible example of late Moorish architecture.
- The Palace of Carlos V. The renaissance palace built for the King of Spain, who fell in love with the Alhambra from the moment he set eyes on it.
