Our Cultural and Tourist Route "Dobla de Oro" promoted by the Patronato de la Alhambra and Generalife, strengthens the links between the oldest quarter of the city, the Albaicín and the monumental complex of the Alhambra, both declared World Heritage by UNESCO.
From the Alhambra on the hill of the Sabika, the Albaicín is a white quarter dotted with cypress trees and the bell towers of the churches that were once mosques. From the Albaicín, on the other hand, the Alhambra is a dense forest whose canopy is covered by the saffron walls of the Alcazaba, the Nasrid Palaces and their towers. In the morning, we will visit the Alhambra, one of the most visited monuments in Spain, symbol of the Nasrid legacy in Andalusia. Also its outbuildings, Nasrid Palaces, the Alcazaba, the Partal, the Medina, the Generalife and its beautiful gardens.
Dobla de Oro invites us to discover a dazzling cultural landscape with an itinerary through the magical quarters full of life, music and history and the six great Hispano-Muslim monuments of Granada. In the afternoon we start our visit by the Dar Al-Horra Palace, built in the heart of the Zirí Citadel and residence of the Sultana Aixa, the mother of Boabdil, the last Nazarite king of Granada. We continue to the Coal Corral, the old Alhóndiga and merchant's hostel, located next to Catholic Monarchs Street, in the Christian city's extension. We continue through the centric Catholic Isabel Square towards the Albaicín neighbourhood, with its narrow streets, its Hammam, cisterns, charming squares and Granada's carmen.
In the Albaicín we visit El Bañuelo, considered the oldest and best preserved public bath in Spain, the Zafra´s House, located in the Albaicín Bajo, near the Maristán, Oven Gold House and the Concepción Convent; and the Chapiz House, on the border between the Albaicín and the Sacromonte, current home of the School of Arab Studies. We continue to the Sacromonte district, with its beautiful viewpoints, known worldwide for its caves, the essence of gypsy life and the Granada zambra, flamenco in its purest form.
