The Alhambra is an islamic palatine city considered to be one of the wonders of the world. By the hand of an architect you will discover the main highlights of this city and its surroundings, from the urban perspective until the decoration details of each space, enriching the visit with visual resources, recommendations, legends, details about how the spaces were built and my own experience living and working in Granada.

Tour Important Information

IMPORTANT! Tickets must be bought in advance before booking the tour (Usually 1-2 months before the tour).

You can buy these on the Alhambra official website (www.tickets.alhambra-tickets.com) selecting the option "General tickets" and choosing the nasrid palaces time you prefer (recommended from 09:00 to 16:00).

The starting time of the tour and the route can slightly change depending on the Nasrid Palaces appointment time. The starting time will usually be one hour before the Nasrid Palaces appointment.

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. Inform me in advance.

The Alhambra with an architect

Granada
4 hours

Manu is fantastic

Manu is an excellent guide. His English is impeccable, he is extremely organized and knowledgeable about the Alhambra and Spanish history in general. He made the Alhambra come alive for us, painting pictures in our minds of how it was built and occupied centuries past. We saw Granada, Sevilla, and Cordoba on this trip and our party agrees Granada was our favorite. Since all we did in Granada was see the Alhambra with Manu, I can’t help but think he had everything to do with it.
