Project Description

What is it?

This tour is an addition to the regular tour to the Alhambra enclosure and it was conceived to give travellers the opportunity to walk peacefully through this magical environment. We will talk about legends, historical characters and, above all, about the hermetic meaning of many spaces inside the Alhambra.

What do we have to offer?

The Alhambra walls were always a frontier with the rest of the city of Granada. As if the mere fact of going through the Arco de las Granadas (Gate of the Pomegranates) will take you into an idyllic and dream place. This is how the Romantics presented the Alhambra to us and this is how we would like you to experience it. A story written on stone and surrounded by a magical forest where fables and legends grow together with real life in one of the most enigmatic places in the world.

What will we see?

We will visit the Fundacion Rodriguez-Acosta Museum (also known as Carmen Blanco) close to Bermejas Towers. We will adventure ourselves through its underground passages, which were part of a dungeon network. Later, we will walk through some of the most special gardens in Granada, located in Carmen de los Martires.

Please, note: Our tour will mostly happen outdoors, but we will also visit the Palace of Charles V and the first grave of Isabella the Catholic. We will also admire the Puerta de la Justicia (Gate of Justice), Puerta del Vino (Gate of Wine), Cuesta de los Chinos and the Alhambra forest.

Please, note: This tour does not include the visits to the Nasrid palaces, the Alcazaba fortress or the Generalife gardens.
