Tour description

At the indicated time we will meet next to the Fuente del Pimiento, next to the Generalife promenade to begin this free tour of the legends of the Alhambra. Welcome to Granada! Although we will not access the interior of the complex's palaces, we will take a walk around its surroundings to learn about the main stories of this famous fort from the Andalusian era.

First, we will surround the walls of this fortress and pass by the tower of the Seven Floors. Do you know why it is called that? We'll find out during the free tour! Next, we will stop at the church of Santa María de la Alhambra and the old Taberna del Polinario to talk to you about its Andalusian past.

We will continue the tour passing under the Gate of Justice and enter the Alhambra forest to learn about the stories and legends of the environment that surrounds the entire Alhambra complex.

Afterwards we will cross the Puerta de las Granadas, from where we will see the imposing Torres Bermejas at the top of the hill. Photo moment!

Finally, after one hour and 45 minutes we will conclude this free tour of Granada in the central Plaza Nueva.

Lamentablemente es la segunda vez que me cancelan el tour en mi viaje y el hoy lo cancelaron 1 hora y media antes. Lamentable realmente ya que hace uno o dos días consulté si se realizaba igual aunque fuéramos solo dos personas (mi pareja y yo) y me contestaron que si se hacía.
