Arrive in Granada. Join your fellow travellers for dinner at an spectacular setting just in front of the Alhambra, Juan Ranas. (BD)

Dia 12, Thursday – Granada
Visit La Alhambra - The name Alhambra comes from an Arabic root which means "red or crimson castle", perhaps due to the hue of the towers and walls that surround the entire hill of La Sabica which by starlight is silver but by sunlight is transformed into gold.

Join your fellow travellers in the early evening for a walking tour of the Albaicin quarter, a rich repository of Moorish vernacular architecture, into which the traditional Andalusian architecture blends harmoniously.
