Our greatest Islamic treasure on an excursion from Malaga

The strong connection between Malaga and Granada goes back many centuries, to Islamic period. Now you can relive this fascinating period in a worry-free experience: this tour includes transportation from Malaga and a private guide who will explore the city of Granada with you, and more importantly, the visit inside The Alhambra!

Discover the most visited monument in Spain with a qualified guide on a three hour tour. You will see the secrets of the Andalusian jewel unveiled in a visit that also includes the Nasrid palaces. You will explore its defensive elements, its palaces, its incredible decoration and plasterwork, its endless gardens, the intrigues of the courts, and also the various catastrophes that the monument went through.

We will pick you up directly from your hotel in Malaga to go directly to The Alhambra. We will visit its corners in the morning. Later in the day, we will visit the historic centre of Granada, very accessible on foot, to breathe in its Nasrid atmosphere, visit its Alcaiceria quarters, the Royal Chapel, the Madraza and its imposing Cathedral.

You will have free time for shopping, coffee and lunch, essential to recharge your batteries, as there is still one more stop to make. An impressive viewpoint from which you can contemplate one of the best views you will ever see in your life, The Alhambra, towering over the hill, contemplated in front of us.
