Granada & the Alhambra
On a 2½-hour drive to Granada, your guide will introduce you to local traditions and history. Granada itself is a beautiful city, but nothing in all of Spain compares to the wealth of architectural art to be found in the city's Muslim-Hispano complex—the 14th-century Alhambra. This breathtaking example of Muslim architecture is surrounded by walls and towers, and inside you will find palaces, military buildings, a fortress and an administrative center. Explore this remarkable structure whose detailed mosaics, prism-style cupolas and stone-cast latticework offer a surprising grace and sophistication. The nearby Generalife gardens surround the summer residence of the Moorish kings. Lunch is included.
Travel time to Granada is approximately 2½ hours each way, with a brief restroom stop en route. The Alhambra is not accessible to wheelchairs or walkers.
