And of course, a side view of the Alhambra and the Palace of Charles V. For 3 hours, you’ll walk through a network of alleys accompanied by a professional guide with extensive knowledge of Granada.

You’ll now understand why UNESCO declared Albaicin a World Heritage Site in 1984, together with La Alhambra.

Private visit - Historical Granada. The Albaicin

Visitting the neighborhood of Albaicin is an experience full of sensations, an exaltation of the senses. It is like a journey through time veiled by mysteries and unknowns. Its winding, narrow and white streets, the small and clean houses, its squares, its inscriptions, its games of light and color, the sound of the water, the views over the Hill of the Sabika, where the Alhambra is located, its environment … they spread beauty and harmony. All this evoke stories from the past that take us to another culture, to another way of understanding life, of living it.
 
During our tour we will visit the Church of San Nicolas, the Great Mosque of Granada, and then stop at the famous San Nicolas Scenic Viewpoint to admire the best views of the Alhambra. We continue down through the network of streets to the Museum Nasrid House of Zafra. Today it houses the Albaicin Interpretation Center. We continue the walk through Carrera del Darro, probably the most beautiful street in Granada, up to Plaza de Santa Ana and Plaza Nueva. Here we find the emblematic building of the Royal Chancery, seat of the High Court of Justice of Andalusia.

Private visit - Historical Granada. The Monumental City

The visit continues to Plaza Isabel la Católica, where we can find the monument dedicated to the Queen Isabella and Christopher Columbus. This sculpture symbolizes the moment when Columbus reached an agreement with the Catholic Monarchs for his expedition to the Indies.

From the Gran Vía de Colón, through the magnificently decorated gateway that gives access to Calle Oficios, we arrive at one of the most well-known streets in the center of Granada. Our next stop will be the Palace of the Madraza, former University of Granada. Founded by Yusuf I in 1349 during the Nasrid period. It was the first university with which Granada counted. In its dependencies were taught medicine, law and mathematics.

Just in front of La Madraza we find the Royal Chapel of Granada, the place chosen by the Catholic Monarchs for their last rest. Visit outside the funeral temple where the mortal remains of Don Fernando de Aragón and Dona Isabel de Castilla rest. We continue to the Cathedral, to discover its impressive facade of Spanish Baroque style designed by Alonso Cano.

Private visit - Historical Granada. Alcaiceria

Our next destination is the Alcaiceria, the old Silk Market in the Nasrid era. It is a network of narrow streets filled with shops selling handicrafts from Granada. We will then leave the Alcaiceria and crossing the Darro River we find the Corral de Carbon. This building is the only Nasrid alhondiga preserved throughout the Iberian Peninsula. It was a public building designed to house merchants and their products, as well as being a grain warehouse. The most monumental part of the building is its magnificent portal, formed by a large horseshoe arch and decorated with an inscription of praise to Allah.

And finally we reached the Plaza del Carmen, where the townhall of Granada lies and place where the guided tour of Granada ends.
