Official Guided Tour Alhambra and Generalife

The official guided tour lasts approximately 3 hours, during which we will explore the Palatine City (currently the best preserved Muslim period palatine city in the world), the Generalife courts (a palace used by Muslim kings as a resting place) and the scenic surroundings (complementary areas such as the forest of the Alhambra, Palace of Carlos V...).

Below are pictures of some of the areas you will explore during your guided tour:

Patio del Ciprés

Considered to be the scene of legendary love stories, fictionalised in the writings of Ginés Pérez de Hita.

The long, narrow Royal Canal; the main hydraulic artery for the complex.

La Alcazaba

The Alcazaba is the oldest part of the Alhambra, an authentic fortress where the royal residence would be established.

Patio de los Leones

The famous fountain is a symbol of their decorative richness and the synthesis with the hydraulic system.

Salón de los Embajadores

This Throne Room is the largest room in the precinct and is surrounded by nine small bedrooms.
