The Alhambra is located on a once inaccessible hill overlooking the city’s most ancient neighbourhoods and the valley of the River Darro. It was originally built as a fortress in 899 before being converted into a Royal Palace by Yusuf I, Sultan of Granada. Your guide will show you around the Royal Palace Complex with its Harem, the Court of the Myrtles with its large pond used for cooling the buildings in the summer heat, the magnificent Hall of the Ambassadors, the breathtakingly beautiful Court of the Lions and the Hall of the Abencerrajes.
We also the visit the Generalife Palace and Gardens built during the reign of Muhammad III and redecorated shortly afterwards by Abu I-Walid Isma'il. The complex was used as a summer palace and retreat by the Nazrid emirs of Granada. Admire the Patio de la Acequia with its long pools framed by flowerbeds, fountains, colonnades and pavilions, and the Sultana's Garden, thought to be inspired by the style of medieval Persian Gardens.
