Almost all the famous palaces, churches and monasteries in Spain are built on the skeleton of a building that was destroyed before it, yet the Alhambra is pure original beauty. The tour begins through a good-luck arch (if you walk through it holding hands with a lover you will married within a year) and ambles through rooms carved with intricate lettering, designs and mosaics. The wood paneling is cut to form stars so the light filters through and palace rooms alternating between shady alcoves and flower filled courtyards. The palace is incredibly beautiful- a kaleidoscope of color and history and I can’t wait to go back!
Everything was so organized and the tour guide was AWESOME! They had everything planned out and I got a really good feel for life in the city. We even got to cut the lines for the Anne Frank House and Van Gogh museum. It was definitely worth the money and I would recommend to anyone looking for a fun filled weekend.Ben Swick, University of Dayton ~ ISA Maynooth University, Fall 2015
