As if suspended between heaven and earth, Granada is a city of dreams, where the air breathes a thousand sublime secrets,” said Ibn Zamrak, an Andalusian poet. Located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Granada enchants visitors with its rich history, lively culture, and breathtaking landmarks, offering an unforgettable journey through time.

Granada is famous for its unique blend of Moorish and Spanish architecture, exemplified by the magnificent Alhambra palace and the Generalife gardens. Its ancient neighborhoods, such as the Albaicín and the Sacromonte, provide a glimpse into the city’s fascinating past. The city’s history spans over a thousand years, influenced by its strategic position and the diverse cultures that have left their imprint on Granada’s distinctive identity. Granada was the last of the Muslim kingdoms in Andalusia, and the end of Al-Andalus came with the completion of the Reconquista led by the Catholic Monarchs, Ferdinand and Isabella. In the same pivotal year of 1492, the newly unified Spain could now face new challenges and dedicate its resources to Christopher Columbus’s voyage, leading to the discovery of the New World.

The Granada tour starts at the iconic Plaza Nueva, a central hub of activity and a gateway to the city’s history. Visit the Royal Chapel and Cathedral, where the famous Catholic Monarchs lie in rest, and stroll through the ancient Moorish silk market of Alcaicería. Marvel at the well-preserved Nasrid-era monument, Corral del Carbón, which once served as a corn exchange and warehouse. Learn about the former Islamic university at the stunning Madraza Palace and explore the charming Plaza Bib-Rambla, a popular gathering spot encircled by cafes, shops, and the renowned flower market. The tour concludes at a captivating location that highlights Granada’s rich history and allure.

Experience this captivating journey through Granada’s past, uncovering the city’s hidden gems and immersing yourself in its enchanting atmosphere.
