The Gate of Justice
We will entry the palatine city through one of its mitical gates, built by the sultan Yusuf I in the 14th century.
The Nasrid Palaces are the best islamic palatine examples preserved from this period and one of the Unesco world heritage wonders. In this area we will see the three palaces that are preserved nowadays: Mexuar palaces, Comares palace and Leones palaces, from different periods of the 14th century.
The most important Spanish emperor wanted to have a renaissance palace in the center of the monument. We will understand the reinaissance composition of this building that nowadays is one of the most photogenical spots in the palatine city of the Alhambra.
The oldest part of the Alhambra and military quarter inside the city, built on the 11th century and with the best views of the territory.
For finishing the tour we will go to the outskirts of the Alhambra where we can find Generalife, that was an "almunia", a summer palace that controlled the productive area of the city.

KIDS: Baby strollers are not allowed inside the Alcazaba, the Nasrid Palaces or the Generalife, but there are lockers close to the ticket office where you can leave them. I highly recommend not to bring the stroller to the Alhambra. The content can be a bit difficult for some kids, but curious kids that want to learn about the monument are always welcome! Inform me in advance.
MOVEMENT DISSABILITIES:The Alhambra is not adapted to wheelchairs, so there will be many places that can't be seen. But don't worry! There is a specific itinerary for wheelchairs that include the palace of Comares, and the Palace of the Lions, and the palace of Charles the Fifth, the main palaces of the Alhambra, and some of the main gardens.
