A moderately difficult walking tour to help you explore the most authentic areas of Granada: the gypsy and troglodyte district of the Sacromonte, full of history, flamenco, and beautiful scenery; the medieval neighborhood of the Albayzín, with its narrow streets, quaint little squares and spectacular belvederes; and the lower city center, the area where most Christians settled. This tour will teach you, Granada, is much more than the Alhambra and you will understand what “love at first sight” is. Tour Highlights: * Official tour guide * Personal audio system reinforcement * Enjoy access to the full monument * Take in amazing views over the city of Granada * Learn about the Islamic and Gypsy cultures in Spain * Visit the narrow alleys of the Albaicin and the Gypsy caves of the Sacromonte * Customizable according to your wishes

Itinerary Details

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Granada, Granada, Province of Granada, Andalucia

where serene Islamic architecture and Arab-flavoured street life go hand in hand with monumental churches, old-school tapas bars, and counterculture graffiti art.

The city, sprawled at the foot of the Sierra Nevada, was the last stronghold of the Spanish Moors and their legacy lies all around: it’s in the horseshoe arches, the spicy aromas emanating from street stalls, the teterías (teahouses) of the Albayzín, the historic Arab quarter. Most spectacularly, of course, it’s in the Alhambra, an astonishing palace complex whose Islamic decor and landscaped gardens are without peer in Europe.

There’s also an energy to Granada’s streets, packed as they are with bars, student dives, bohemian cafes, and intimate flamenco clubs, and it’s this as much as the more traditional sights that leave a lasting impression.

The tour could be customized in each case depending on the meeting point & time, your physical conditions and the climatic circumstances, but the ideal tour would be as follows:

Meeting at Plaza Isabel la Católica and head up towards the picturesque Plaza Nueva; then visit the Lower Albayzín and follow the Darro river until we arrive at Paseo de Los Tristes, where we would admire the magnificent views of the Alhambra.
From here, we would mount up the hill to enter in the Sacromonte district and keep climbing through its sinuous steps with amazing views; if we're lucky, we might find some neighbor who would show us their cave-house for a euro or two. Then we would head towards the UNESCO listed Albayzín neighborhood where we will stop at San Nicolás, the most famous viewpoint in Granada.
After this, we would descend downtown and visit the Royal Chapel, the former silk market and an old caravanserai. We would finish in front of the Cathedral of Granada where I could suggest some good places to eat.
