Travel to Granada and on through the Andalusian countryside to the Alhambra Palace
Enjoy the beautiful countryside during your 2-hour ride to Granada. Located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, Granada was the stronghold of the last great Moorish Kingdom in Spain. Although the entire historic city is filled with cultural treasures, its main attraction is the Alhambra Palace, a Moorish citadel that overlooks the city. At the time it was built, this mighty fortress and luxury residence was one of the most lavish palaces that Spain had ever known.
Dating back to the 14th century, this palace of sultans stands as one of the best examples of Islamic art in all the world. Led by an official guide, you will wander through the courtyards and elegant halls, and past many fountains and ponds set amongst dazzling gardens. You will also walk through the beautiful Gardens of Generalife, the hunting lodge, and country retreat where the rulers and their wives went to escape the turmoil of the palace.
