Discover why the Alhambra in Granada is one of Spain's most popular monuments with this day trip from Benalmadena. Delve deep into its legendary Moorish history!

Itinerary

The tour will leave Benalmadena and head for Granada across the stunning mountainous Malaga countryside.

After around an hour and a half's drive, you'll begin your tour of the old Nasrid capital with a guided visit of the Alhambra. You'll get to explore the iconic palace-complex's most famous chambers and courtyards, like the beautiful Palacios Nazaríes where the famous Patio de los Leones is located.

As you discover the fascinating history of the Muslim caliphs and emirs who ruled the land until the Catholic Monarchs' Reconquista in 1492, you'll be able to visit further captivating parts of the Alhambra, such as the jardines del Generalife. The gardens are a beautifully preserved example of authentic Al-Andalus design.

Having finished your guided tour of the Alhambra, you'll have free time to enjoy exploring Granada and buy lunch in the city's historic centre. The perfect opportunity to try the area's famous tapas!

Finally, meet back up for the evening bus journey back to Benalmadena.
