About this wheelchair accessible guided visit to Alhambra tour

Starting from Granada

The Alhambra is located in Granada. We can arrange for a driver to meet you at your city center accommodation, or in the surroundings. The total tour duration will depend on the transfer time to get to the Alhambra.

Starting from Málaga

Your driver will meet you at the cruise port with private adapted transport. He will be waiting for you with a sign with your name on it, and together you head to Granada. The one-way drive will take approximately 1.5 hours from Malága. Upon arrival at the Alhambra, you meet your private licensed guide who will explain all the ins and outs of this truly amazing site.

The Alhambra

The Alhambra, declared a World Heritage Site in 1984, is a palatine city located on the Sabika hill, next to the Darro River. Its name comes from the color of the walls (Al-Hamra in Arabic), constructed with the clay from the ground, hence its reddish color.

The complex consists of the gardens of the Generalife, the Nasrid Palaces and the Alcazaba, built in Arabic. Of Christian influence, we find the palace of Carlos V and the church of Santa Maria, built on the old mosque.

The Alhambra is divided into three parts: the Alcazaba, the Nasrid Palaces and the Generalife Gardens. Your guide will explain what you see and what makes this place so majestic.

Alcazaba

Alcazaba is the defensive zone of the Alhambra, where the army and the oldest part of the monument resided. Mohamed I walled the castle and raised the towers of the Homage, the Quebrada and the Candle. After finishing the royal palaces, the king provided him residency in exchange. The Alcazaba remained a military fortress.

Generalife

Generalife is the palace and recreational estate, independent of the Alhambra. Used by the Nasrid kings as a place of retirement and rest, especially in the hot summer months.

Nasrid Palaces

The enclosure of the Nasrid Palaces is divided into three independent zones:

  • Mexuar, where the administration of justice and the dispatch of State affairs were carried out
  • Comares Palace, built by King Yusuf I, combining the representative function of the monarchy for the official management of State affairs.
  • The Palace of the Lions, built by order of Mohamed V, son of Yusuf I, intended a private zone for the royal family and the harem.

After your visit, your driver takes you back to your hotel or the cruise port again.
