Granada is located at an altitude of 680 meters above sea level and at the foot of the Sierra Nevada, the highest massif in the Iberian Peninsula. It was the capital of the Zirí Kingdom of Granada during the 11th century, and of the Nasrid Kingdom of Granada between the 13th and 15th centuries.
The city will remain with this structure after the conquest of Granada by the Catholic Monarchs in 1492, although the eleven years that followed the surrender of the city generated changes that would end up significantly modifying its character.
We will take a guided tour of the Alhambra, the Nasrid palace city declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984, which is undoubtedly the most emblematic monument of Granada. It consists of a defensive zone, the Alcazaba; another of residential and representative character, the Nasrid Palaces; and a last one of leisure, the Generalife, which consists of a palace and several gardens.
We will also visit the so-called Palace of Charles V. Work on this palace, one of the most important works of the Spanish Renaissance, began in 1533 and continued until 1957.
Finally, we will include a tour (subject to the Alhambra entrance hours) of the Granada Monumental located in the historic center. We will be able to admire the Church of Las Angustias (Patron Saint of the city), La Alcaicería, the Cathedral and the Royal Chapel.
