Discover the secret way in which the Alhambra maintains its natural splendor and plant life, and how, thanks to its partially underground irrigation system, the palatine city enjoyed self-sufficient water resources and how events and the passage of Napoleon’s troops in 1912 made a dent on the walls of the fortress. Despite the centuries, though, they remain standing as an unchanged paradise.

We will cross the imposing Gate of Justice and walk under the chestnut of the Indies, willows, hazelnut and maple trees of the Alhambra planted on the hill in the seventeenth century.

What was the kingdom like from its Islamic splendor to its transition to cultural admixture, and how, for example, did the Church of Santa Maria replace the Great Mosque of the Alhambra: these are the topics you will get to learn about on our walk, as well as the major influence that these places held on a nineteenth-century personage who came here to compile the most famous stories and legends about the Alhambra, the romantic Hispanist Washington Irving.

Our guides, professionals with a passionate for the history of the Alhambra and Granada, will accompany you on this stroll through the many corners of Sabika Hill, and the most emblematic places that make up this historical place.
