Alhambra, Generalife and Albayzín, Granada
Rising above the modern lower town, the Alhambra and the Albaycín, situated on two adjacent hills, form the medieval part of Granada. To the east of the Alhambra fortress and residence are the magnificent gardens of the Generalife, the former rural residence of the emirs who ruled this part of Spain in the 13th and 14th centuries. The residential district of the Albaycín is a rich repository of Moorish vernacular architecture, into which the traditional Andalusian architecture blends harmoniously.
Alhambra is composed of three parts -- the Royal Palace, the Generalife Gardens and the Fortress of Alcazaba. The Royal Palace was the opulent living quarters of the monarchs, while the Fortress of Alcazaba provided a range of lookout points to defend the Royal Palace. The gardens of Generalife, which surround the Royal Palace and fortress, are reputedly inspired by the Koranic description of Paradise. An expert guide will lead you on a guided tour of the Alhambra Palace.
Enjoy lunch at a restaurant situated at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, a favorite of King Juan Carlos I and his family, before returning to Málaga and your waiting vessel.
