Alhambra, Nasrid Palaces, Generalife and Alcazaba Private Tour in Granada

Learn about the history of Granada on this 3-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. I wander farther through a complex that Washington Irving captured so well in his 1832 tome Tales of the Alhambra – his words often in awe of their context. “How unworthy is my scribbling of the place?” he famously asked himself – and it is not difficult to understand his sentiment, inching along the ramparts of the Alcazaba, the oldest part of the site, its military acorn. Below, the Rio Darro twinkles, Granada a sultry Spaniard on its banks, but it still seems odd to think of the flags of Castile and Aragon flying on these battlements, in conquest, in 1492. You can choose between Morning ,Afternoon or Night visit. Depends of the Nasrid palaces meeting time.
