The 3 hour tour (in English) was described by our passengers last year as an 'absolute must'. It's Spain's most visited attraction for very good reason.
Granada has an awesome cultural legacy and the Alhambra is the jewel that crowns this beautiful city at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. We'll visit the Nazarian city, the Alhambra, where every square inch is a work of art, palaces and grand halls. The name is Arabic for 'Red Fortress' and was built by the Moorish rulers of Granada as their residence and court in the mid-14th Century ‘to reflect the beauty of Paradise itself’. The last Arabic king cried, retreating, as the Catholic Kings conquered it, and during the tour you’ll understand why, as stunning Islamic architecture and decoration fill the palace and mosque along with the incredible Generalife gardens, the fountains and streams; a UNESCO World Heritage site scoring super high on the 'Wow' scale.
Due to high demand tickets for the Alhambra sell out up to a week in advance, but do not fear! Save yourself the hassle by logging in to your MyTrip account and purchasing your guaranteed tickets with Busabout.
