Stop At: Nasrid Palaces, Calle Real De La Alhambra, 18009 Granada Spain

Nasrid Palaces : Mexuar, Comares, Lions and Generalife.
Mohammed ben Al-Hamar (Mohammed I) was the first king to move to the Alcazaba and no records about a new palace being built are kept until those of Abu l-Walid Ismail (fifth king of the dynasty).
A palace was built near the Great Mosque (Gran Mezquita) but only the Mexuar is now left because Yusuf I destroyed it completely. He started some improvements in the Comares Tower (Torre de Comares), the Court of the Myrtles (Patio de los Arrayanes) and the Baths (Baños). These improvements were finished by Mohammed V, who added them all to the Mexuar, extended the gallery that would later be called Machuca and constructed the Palace of the Lions (Palacio de los Leones). These two kings were the most important ones as regards the construction, reconstruction, and decoration of the Alhambra.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Alcazaba, Calle Real de la Alhambra Conjunto Monumental de la Alhambra y el Generalife, 18009 Granada Spain

Alcazaba & Generelife : The Generalife and the Alhambra were connected through gardens that successfully integrated the buildings with nature. The zone was simultaneously divided into the three parts that constitute the New Garden (Jardines Nuevos) today.
In 1931 a section resembling a labyrinth garden, with arched rose gardens and cypress trees, was finished near the building; in 1951 the section was extended in accordance with the architect Prieto Moreno’s design for a Muslim-style garden, with an irrigation channel crossing, streets, cypress lined walls, a pergola and a view of both the Alhambra and the city. After your visit to Alhambra and before giving back the audio guide, discover the city’s best cultural offerings, tapas bars, monuments, and museums. Go to exhibitions and track restaurants according to price and the type of cuisine.
Follow the tips of your GPS navigator,(with audio guide) and relax in the evening with a massage, have fun with friends at a great restaurant, play golf, or visit an amusement park.
