Walking around the Alhambra's citadel immerses you in a green landscape filled with stupendous views, the beauty of its paths, cool waters and, of course, history.  The Alhambra has been home to Nasrid sultans and Christian kings like Charles V, but what was the earliest Sabika of the sultans like?  What did they expect of the Alhambra?  Why did Charles V fall in love with Granada?  Your expert guide will provide you with the answers to these questions, which lie hidden within the hill...as you enjoy its peace, beauty and calm.

You will be guided from one site to another on Sabika Hill, entering the public spaces within the ensemble and stopping at some of the most important monumental areas.  Delve into aspects of the "Alhambra Medina" and learn about the plant life on the hill that borders the edges of the wall, along with the water, land, city gates and defensive system. You will also come to understand the importance of the "Christian Alhambra," learning about the history of this important heritage site.
