Overview

Free Tour around the surroundings of the Alhambra and Palace of Carlos V, where we will visit the areas of the outer fortress and you will be able to know fascinating paths and parts of the Alhambra and its surroundings.

The high demand for the monumental complex of the Alhambra makes our visitors, on many occasions, leave Granada without visiting it. With this tour around the Alhambra you will get to know some parts of this essential place for all who visit Granada.

On this visit we will get to know the Alhambra by accessing with our guides the public areas that are offered, where we can enjoy many of its corners and gardens. Its wonderful views will serve as the setting to learn about the fascinating history and disturbing legends of the monumental complex. We will visit an old hammam or steam bath and an inlaid artisan workshop, one of the ancient artisan techniques that are still alive in Granada.

We will also know an extensive collection of medieval pieces excellently preserved in the precious Archaeological Museum of the Alhambra, through which we will understand the meaning of ancient Al-Andalus. In the Palace of Carlos V we will see how the master architect Pedro Machuca designed a circular patio that was unprecedented in the Renaissance. Enjoy this free tour with us.
