Evening Tour of the Albaicín in Granada

Granada, Spain
In the evening, when the sun sets and the locals pack the tapas bars, you'll explore the Albaicín district, Granada's former Moorish quarter, with an expert local guide. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, your guide will show you how this medieval Islamic city-within-a-city has kept its identity into the modern age, explaining its social history and character in anecdotal style. 

As you walk through the Albaicín's twisting alleyways, you'll come across stunning views of the city, the majestic Alhambra palaces and gardens, and the Sierra Nevada Mountains (often snowcapped) that provide a stunning backdrop. You'll pass by churches built on the sites of mosques, stroll underneath the scented gardens of "Carmenes," and stop in squares to take in the slow rhythm of daily life in this most traditional and yet singular neighborhood. Along the way, you'll stop at a time-honored tapas bar to enjoy a drink and snack.
