The real voyage of discovery consists, not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes...and that is actually our goal with this tour: To show you the famous "Alhambra and Generalife" from another perspective.

History and legend are intermingled in this jewel of the Nasrid dinasty of Al-Andalus that perfectly combines water, light, architecture and vegetation.

Do you want to know the symbolism behind each of these elements?

Esotericism, sufism, astrology, mythology... interesting, isn't it?

The Alhambra walls and fountains are actually a book full of poetry, religion and political propaganda, where we can also read the function of its rooms in the voice of a beautiful woman speaking with a delicate voice to the visitor.

Together we will experience the same overwhelming feeling of those ambassadors coming to visit the Nasrid king and its piece of paradise on earth...

Thousands book guided tours to the Alhambra every they all come back home knowing its secrets?
