About the Guru

Hi, I guess you already guessed that my name is Jorge ... so I will tell you a little about myself. I am a senior tourism technician, official guide of the Junta de Andalucía and guide in the Alhambra (although the latter only has the merit of presenting the guide card at the monument's offices).

Hi, I guess you already guessed that my name is Jorge ... so I will tell you a little about myself. I am a senior tourism technician, official guide of the Junta de Andalucía and guide in the Alhambra (although the latter only has the merit of presenting the guide card at the monument's offices). What is passionate about the city and history I skip it because if it weren't, I would dedicate myself to something else. What I do tell you is that I focus on the shadows created by the official focus of the story that, normally, was written by people who collected money and could not speak ill of the boss. If you are looking for legends, better book with another Guru because I believe in the topic that reality always surpasses fiction.

About the Tour

Do you want to know the Alhambra in the light of Federico García Lorca?

Hello, my name is Jorge and I am "lorcolic" , an addiction from which I hope I will never be cured. I have designed this tour tracing a path through the history of Granada from the Nasrid family to the Civil War. It will be the vision of Federico García Lorca that will lead us to meet her, riding Flamenco , outside the Alhambra.

I had the immense opportunity to meet with the Hispanicist Ian Gibson who enlightened me, even more, the life of the poet and I want to share that experience on this tour.

 

What you will do:

  • You will visit places like the Palace of Carlos V, which he liked so little; the Puerta del Vino, which inspires without knowing it; the Plaza de los Aljibes, so relevant to him and to his great friend Manuel de Falla; or the one that was the tavern where he met to talk and listen to Flamenco.
  • You will walk through the areas of the Alhambreño complex that are freely accessible and that are related to the poet. The Granada genius used to walk with his friends on Mount Sabika, where the Alhambra is located.
  • You will go down back to Granada where one of the twenty-four Nasrid emirs had to flee to save his life.
  • You will visit one of the most macabre places that exist in the Alhambra.
  • You will end at the Paseo de los Tristes.


Advice:

  • If you are going to visit the Alhambra with a ticket (Nasrid Palaces, Alcazaba and Generalife), taking this tour beforehand will make the monument enter you, which is not the same as entering the monument.
  • To get to the meeting point:

OPTION 1: you can access from Plaza Nueva walking along the Cuesta de Gomérez (15m steep climb).
OPTION 2: from Plaza Isabel La Católica with the C30 and C32 minibuses ("Puerta de la Justicia" stop).

  • IMPORTANT: DO NOT TAKE THE C32 IN A NEW PLACE!
  • If you are 10 minutes before starting, I appreciate it.
  • Sports shoes, comfortable clothes and water (some cost we will go up).

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: See you at the Puerta de la Justicia.
