Welcome to Marbella


But Marbella has other, less ostentatious attractions. Its natural setting is magnificent, sheltered by the beautiful Sierra Blanca mountains, while its surprisingly attractive casco antiguo (old town) is replete with narrow lanes and well-tended flower boxes.

Long before Marbella starting luring golfers, zillionaires and retired Latin American dictators, it was home to Phoenicians, Visigoths, Romans and Moors. One of the joys of a visit to the modern city is trying to root out their legacy.

The complex, originally constructed as a small fortress in 889 AD, sits atop a hill and offers sweeping views of nearby villages and the jagged Sierra Nevada mountain range in the distance. Upon arrival, your guide regales you with stories about the site's construction and transformation over the centuries.Hop out of your vehicle and enter the sprawling complex, gazing up at its sheer stone walls designed with contemporary Abassid architecture. This former fortress was converted into a palace in the 14th century, so you're greeted by delicate stonework and ornate ceilings with each chamber you enter. Step into the Royal Complex and see the quarters that Charles V once called home, and then wander the former sultan's recreational area and lush Moorish gardens.

Malaga to Alhambra Palace and Generalife Gardens: Private Tour

Learn about the history of Granada on this 6-hour guided tour of the Alhambra and Generalife summer palace with skip the line ticket. A Specialist and historian guide will lead you around the vast complex, dating back more than 600 years. Marvel at a magnificent mix of Islamic art and culture. On this guided tour you will feel the spirit of the last Muslim bastion in Spain. Yusuf is still here – in spirit. So is his father, Ismail I, and his son, Muhammed V. These three sultans were largely responsible for the Palacio Nazaríes – the 14th-century miracle that shines as the Alhambra’s jewel. To amble through these chambers and corridors is to step into Al-Andalus, to feel the energy of a civilization that held such a significant portion of Europe in its clever grip for eight centuries. Its matters of state still whisper in the Mexuar – a meeting place for ministers, all floral tiles and tapering columns, whose later conversion into a chapel could not conceal its Moorish origins. Its afternoons at play still haunt the Patio de los Leones – an intricate courtyard, the core of royal life under Muhammed V, where fountains splash. And its sophistication still flickers around the Palacio de Comares. Your tour includes hotel pickup and drop off via private coach from the following cities:  Malaga, Fuengirola, Marbella, Torremolinos, and Benalmadena.  Then,  you will be driven to Alhambra (about 1hr 30min) then you will visit Alhambra with your official tour guide (about 2hrs and 30min).  See Nasrid Palace where you will enjoy the Mexuar, Comares and Lions courtyard; Alcazaba - the Military Fortification; and Generalife - the recreational Palace and Gardens.Enjoy your free time (60 min) exploring outside or inside Alhambra where you can visit our shops, restaurants, and museums.  Then, back to Malaga (about 1hr 30min) to conclude your tour.
