Delve into the medieval-style landscape characteristic of Granada, the city where flamenco was born and gypsies settled in Spain, by joining this tour of Albaicín and Sacromonte.
You'll tour a beautiful region surrounded by natural wonders such as the peaks of the Sierra Nevada and the Alhambra, a town filled with castles, palaces and walls that preserves the essence of the Nasrid kingdom, when the Muslims ruled this area of Andalusia between 1238 and 1492.
You will learn about the history of Granada with a professional guide, who will tell you about the rich and legendary history of this Andalusian city, where you will walk through its oldest quarter: the Albaicín, also known as the Islamic quarter.
You will stroll through must-see sights for tourists, such as the Mirador de San Nicolas, famous for its dreamy sunsets and a spectacular panoramic view of the Alhambra, the Generalife residence and the spectacular mountainous area of the Sierra Nevada.
You will feel the authentic energy of the locals as you walk through the streets of the Sacromonte quarter, where you will have the opportunity to see the famous caves, a place where the gypsies hold flamenco shows, known to the locals as Zambras.
At Carrera del Darro, you will witness the natural beauty of the Darro River, which crosses it on the left side with idyllic stone and brick bridges, including the Puente de Cabrera and Puente de Espinosa.
You'll enjoy an unforgettable two-hour walking tour, where nature blends seamlessly with medieval architecture, cobbled streets, slopes and canals leading to the historic Darro River.
