Full description
If you did not secure an entrance ticket to the Alhambra, this is the perfect opportunity to instead visit the free zones with a guide and learn about the history of the monument. Visit the Palace of Carlos V, which houses the Alhambra Museum and an exclusive collection of Hispano-Muslim and Nasrid art. Marvel at the vast circular courtyard inside this majestic building. Continue on Calle Real to the church of Santa María de la Alhambra, built on the old main mosque. You will also visit the Puerta del Vino, the Alhambra forest, and the old Hamman.

      Guide was friendly, knowledgeable and fun. The tour was worthwhile, although I’d suggest booking months in advance for anyone who wishes to see the pay for entry portions of Alhambra.
