Your Experience

Meet your guide at the front entrance of the Alcazaba and begin your journey back in time as you learn about the many fascinating historical facts about this great monument. The interior of the Alcazaba is divided into three walled sections, sprawled upon a long slope from the lowest part near the entrance; the first two are Islamic, and the third is Christian. Stroll through the large gardens of the first enclosure, that is known to have followed the design of the Generalife de la Alhambra Gardens.

Follow your guide and see the second enclosure, the heart of the Alcazaba. From the eastern end of the Palace Complex, you can look out at the Ermita de San Juan chapel, which was converted from a mosque by the Catholic Monarchs. The Casa del Alcaide (Governor's House) here might look familiar to you - that’s because season 6 of Game of Thrones was filmed here, featuring the mythical kingdom of Dorne.

Finally, you will head to the third and innermost enclosure, whose thick stone walls and sturdy round towers are in much better shape than the rest of the Alcazaba. By the end of your tour, your guide will show you to the area where you can look out and see the seaport of the city.
