The only medieval Arab palace still in existence, it is recognised as one of the Wonders of the World. We also visit the verdant Generalife Gardens.

We love venturing into the oldest part of the city, where cobbled streets open up onto lively squares and beautiful churches tower overhead. Here, youll notice the Gothic and Mudejar styles come together. Well have a guided tour including a visit to the Mezquita.
