After greeting your guide in central Granada, you’ll stroll to your first destination while listening to history-rich commentary that details Granada’s Moorish past. Pause to absorb Corral del Carbón, a formidable 14th-century arch, and then continue to Alcaicería to browse stalls brimming with colorful fabrics.
Learn of Alcaicería’s prosperous past, and the devastating 19th-century fire that destroyed the bazaar, as you approach the Cathedral and Royal Chapel (Capilla Real) — two ancient landmarks that ooze Gothic grandeur and Renaissance flamboyance.
Enter the cathedral to admire its opulent gold interior and find out why the structure’s façade has remained incomplete. Then, listen to Moorish legends of Ferdinand and Isabel inside the Royal Chapel (Capilla Real) before bidding your guide farewell and continuing to explore Granada independently.
