Guided Tour of the Alhambra by Night
Francisco de Icaza said it best: there’s nothing like the sorrow of being blind in Granada.
This Andalusian city is a site to be savored with all five senses, and its crown jewel, the Alhambra, is the chief seductress.
All the refinement, wealth and delicacy of Islamic art and architecture reached its climax in this fortress, residence and royal city all rolled into one. The floral engraving on the walls, idyllic Generalife garden and constant, calming sound of fountains embody the strength of sumptuous Muslim tradition. At sunset, the reddish-brown walls of the palace glow beneath the stars, and the snowcapped Sierra Nevada seems to sparkle in the background. Stroll around the grounds, where the Moorish royalty used to recite poetry with their lovers, and take in the breathtaking views of the mythical city nestled between mountain and sea.
“We liked Granada a lot and the Alhambra was incredible. Our guide Pablo was terrific… We liked Ronda and Sevilla…”
“I would like to thank you for the wonderful experience my guests had with you. Every day they wrote to me about the trip. You cannot imagine how many friends of theirs have contacted me about this program.”
