What we will do
  • In Granada, capital of the Andalusian province, we are won over by the countless, priceless architectonic wonders. We begin our excursion with a visit to the Alhambra Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A small fortified royal city, it is built on the top of a hill, La Sabika. The fortress, testament to the city's Moorish past, is one of few Moorish monuments still intact today.
  • The spell continues as we walk through the stunning Generalife gardens, the former summer residence of the Arabian kings, located outside of the fortified walls of the Alhambra. The name derives from the Arabic "Yanat-al-Arif" which means "the architect's garden", taken to signify the "Garden of God". We soak up the magical atmosphere of this heavenly garden and its terraces, water features and elegant decorations.
  • Having admired this Arabian architectural work of art, we will take a break at a typical restaurant where we will taste delicious local cuisine before heading back to the ship.

  • The visit around the Alhambra and its gardens includes a walking tour which lasts approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes.
