What To Expect

Plaza Nueva
This tour will begin in one of the most important squares of the city, the Plaza Nueva. Its origin must be found in Christian times, when in 1506 the extension of the hitherto Hatabin bridge or the lumberjacks was determined, which we were already at another entrance at the confluence of this square with Elvira street and Reyes Catolicos street.

Calle Caldereria Nueva
Calderería Street is a pedestrian street in the capital that descends from the Placeta de San Gregorio to the well-known Elvira Street.
It is also known as «Calle de las Teterías» due to its huge premises dedicated to serving teas of all types.

We will pass through the Church of San Gregorio Bético dating back to the 16th century, and it has its origin in a hermitage that was built by order of the Catholic Monarchs, in honor of the Franciscan monks Juan de Cetina and Pedro de Dueñas, martyred in 1397.

Acera del Darro
The Darro River bridges were a fundamental element in the urban structure of the Islamic and Christian city, articulating the visual dialogue and accessibility between both banks of the River. At present, only five of them have survived, located in the well-known Carrera del Darro and in the Paseo de los Tristes, of all those who crossed the Darro riverbed until its mouth in the Genil river. The majority of these bridges were destroyed or their vestiges are found under the current Darro embossdado, an engineering work that was carried out between the 17th and 19th centuries, establishing a new image of the 'modern' city to the taste of the great European metropolises.

Murallas de Albarracin
The Zirí Wall is one of the sections of the Albaicín wall. It is located in the highest area of the neighborhood, where the Ibero-Roman city that received the name of Eliberri stood. This 11th century canvas is one of the oldest monuments in the city. It is part of the original nucleus of the Islamic city of Granada, where it is thought that the Qasaba Qadima or Alcazaba Vieja of the Zirí monarch Habus (1013) was located. The Aljibe del Rey (11th century) and the Nasrid Palace of Dar-al-Horra (15th century) are in this same environment.

The SacroMonte is today the headquarters of the gypsies of Granada.

Jackie was fantastic guide. She gave us lots of information and was especially helpful to ensure a comfortable experience for my wife in taking breaks to sit down every now and then. We will be back for more tours in Granada area because of this wonderful tour.
Experiencia Unica

Era mi Cumpleaños y me autoregale una excursion privada y guiada por la Alhambra y el albaicin.

Realmente merecio la pena, pude hacer uno de mis sueños que era la visita a los palacios Nazaris Nocturnos, creo que sin Pancho no hubiera sido posible, la belleza de los mismos es espectacular en el caer de la noche Granadina. Al dia siguiente continuamos la visita por el resto de la Alhambra, Carlos V, generalife, alcazaba.

Merece la pena es algo que recomiendo a todo el mundo, empresa seria y dedicada.
