Know More about this tour

The essential Granada, the places in the city that any visitor with an interest in the city simply has to see. They are also essential for you to fall in love with the city.

It is a guided tour that shows the history of Granadas transformation, how events and history changed the city between the Muslim period and the reign of the Catholic Kings.

We will walk through the historic centre of the city near the Cathedral buildings, the core of the urban transformation plan that transformed the city after the conquest. We would draw your attention to the Cathedral, the Royal Chapel, the Merchant's Hall, the Madraza and the Royal Chancery.

In order to get an idea of what life in Muslim Granada before the Conquest was like, we have decided to visit the lower part of the Albayzn - a World Heritage Site since 1994 - and the Carrer del Darro, which is especially evocative. The Gran Va, which shows the changing styles of the 19th century Modernist period, runs between both of these areas.

This walk is therefore a journey back to the time when the monuments, squares, alleyways and corners that express the cultural essence of Granada were created, with the blend of styles and the influence of religions in town planning, society and the economy.

All the places that visitors to Granada shouldnt miss are available for you to visit with expert professional guides, specialists in the city on this route through the essential Granada.

    Although the weather wasn't all sunshine, Juan our tour guide was so insightful and shared some great details about the city's history. He also took us to some amazing places to see the Alhambra from the Albacin.

    This was the perfect introduction to Granada. Our tour guide Lucy was knowledgable and friendly. She took us to all kinds of spots that we would not have known to go to view the Alhambra and also answered all of our questions. There were just 4 of us on the tour so we got a really in depth tour. We loved it! I would do this again if I were going to Granada.

    We were the only two persons booked and so had a private tour. Granada is small city around which it is easy to walk, and we had already been to the Cathedral and Alhambra the previous day. However, we valued this tour for visiting small streets in the area of Albaicin, which we would not have found ourselves, and to which we then returned on our own the following day. Stephanie was very informative and we covered a good amount of ground. She took us into buildings and courtyards which we would not have found ourselves. We were gald to have booked this tour.

    It was worth having a guide to find the hidden secrets of Granada. We enjoyed it so much we booked another tour for a night walking tour.
