A two-hour drive from Málaga brings you first to Granada's Carthusian Monastery. If the exterior is a smoldering ember, the inside is a riotous explosion of ornamentation. Its most striking features include the tabernacle, the church, and the famous sacristy. The charterhouse also displays an extensive collection of paintings by influential artist Juan Sánchez Cotán.
Next, a short drive brings you to the San Cristobal Viewpoint for an overview introduction to Granada.
You'll visit the part of the Albaycin Quarter opposite the Alhambra, perched on a hill and offering fantastic views. The Albaycin is one of the oldest settlements in Andalusia. It is the flat part of an otherwise hilly city and was once protected by a city wall. The Albaycin is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a sprawling labyrinth of narrow cobblestone streets, tiny houses, and noble mansions with beautiful gardens. Your walk through the Albaycin takes you to the Palace Dar al-Horra -- former residence of the Sultana Aixa. Structured around a central courtyard, it boasts beautiful plasterwork on the upper floor with inscriptions from the Nasrid period. The locals call it the Little Alhambra.
Passing the Santa Isabel Monastery, you'll come to San Nicolas Square, famous for its view over the Alhambra. Visit the adjacent gardens of the mosque.
A few yards away, step into Mirador de Morayma Restaurant - set in a historic house with a lovely view over Granada’s rooftops, with the famed Alhambra in the distance. It’s also home to some of the region’s most lauded cuisine. Your delicious lunch includes local dishes with a modern flair, including pomegranate salad with fried garlic, oxtail croquettes and Iberian pork -- an experience that will satisfy all your senses.
Walk back to San Cristobal and relax on the drive back to the ship at Málaga .
