A Historical Tour of La Alhambra 

The Seda Club package includes access to the most representative and less travelled areas of La Alhambra, ensuring an intimate and detailed experience. This special tour includes:

Paseo de los Cipreses, Secano and Jardines de San Francisco

The Paseo de los Cipreses, located behind the Paseo de las Adelfas, is a charming pathway flanked by cypress trees that marks the way out of La Alhambra. This beautiful path was established in the early 20th century. Recently, during the paving works on the Paseo de los Nogales, a segment of the historic Nasrid Acequia Real was rediscovered and made accessible to the public. 

The Secano de La Alhambra is a fascinating area located between the Torre de las Infantas, the Cautiva and the Torre de Siete Suelos. This area is home to the remains of Moorish and Christian structures that tell the story of past times. It is called “Secano” due to historical events that occurred in the 16th century, when the water pipes that supplied the irrigated land in this area were destroyed. This act transformed a previously irrigated space into a dry land, profoundly shaping the landscape and architecture of the site, adding an intriguing chapter to the rich historical mosaic of La Alhambra.

The Gardens of San Francisco, located within La Alhambra, form part of the space formerly occupied by the Convent of San Francisco. Today, these gardens are integrated into the Parador Nacional de Turismo, offering a haven of tranquil simplicity. This landscaped cloister is characterised by its modesty and elegance, where a few orange trees stand amidst the typical Granada cobblestones and a few scattered flowerpots.

Alcazaba: La Vela Tower and the Adarves Garden

The Alcazaba of La Alhambra is notable for its function as a military enclosure, as evidenced by its strategic access. It is entered through a gate hidden behind a curved wall at the foot of the keep, designed to conceal it from the outside and to control the entrance by means of a vaulted corridor full of curves. This design facilitated defence and control from the top before reaching the Plaza de Armas, an open space for military activities. It also housed residences for the elite guard and their families, as well as spaces for storage and troops, forming an urban structure similar to that of a Hispano-Muslim quarter.

The Torre de la Vela, an imposing fortress that towers over the defensive wall of La Alhambra, is one of Granada’s most recognisable icons. Over the centuries, this tower has not only served as a military stronghold, but has also come to symbolise the city itself. Its importance is such that, in 1843, Queen Isabella II granted the right to include the Torre de la Vela in the official coat of arms of Granada, highlighting its historical significance and emblematic value for the capital. 

The Jardín de los Adarves, an emblematic corner located on the south side of the Alcazaba of La Alhambra, dates from the 16th century and was originally conceived as a private garden for the governor of La Alhambra.

Partal: palace portico, gardens and walkways

The Partal in La Alhambra is remarkable for its historic architecture and design which encapsulates the essence of Nasrid culture. Centred around a large pool, the Partal is dominated by a five-arched portico, behind which stands the Torre de las Damas, one of the most emblematic elements of the site. This site is accessible via a narrow landscaped walkway that overlooks Sacromonte and passes through the Patio de la Higuera. This structure is recognised as one of the oldest palaces still standing in La Alhambra, attributed to the time of Sultan Muhammad III (1302-1309).

Generalife: gardens and palace (Acequia courtyard, Sultana courtyard and water staircase)

The Generalife served as a haven of rest for the monarchs of Granada, a place chosen to escape the formalities of the official palace. This palatial villa, built in the mid-13th century, is even older than the Palace of Comares according to an inscription dated 1319, which details how King Abu I-Walid Isma’il (1313-1324) carried out redecoration work here. Located close to La Alhambra but once considered external to the city, the Generalife was sufficiently remote that a rebellion once broke out in La Alhambra during the absence of Muhammad V, who was in the Generalife. Today, this historic site comprises two sets of buildings that are interconnected by the iconic Patio de la Acequia.

The Patio de la Acequia is the heart of the Generalife. This space has undergone numerous changes since Moorish times, both in its structure and in its landscaping. Characterised by a canal that runs longitudinally through the courtyard, it carries water from La Alhambra’s irrigation channel and is adorned with a series of small spouts that culminate in two stone bowls at each end.

The Patio de la Sultana at La Alhambra is characterised by its tranquil central pool, which is flanked by myrtle hedges and contains another small pool with a stone fountain at its core. This courtyard is named after the ancient cypress trees that stand in its arbours. The most famous of these cypresses is known as the Cypress of the Sultana. According to a popular legend, it was under this cypress that the wife of Boabdil, the last Nasrid king of Granada, and a knight of the Abencerraje tribe met secretly.

The Water Staircase, located in the gardens of the Generalife, is one of the most charming and original structures on the site. It is believed to be the oldest staircase in the garden, dating back to Moorish times. The staircase is divided into three flights, each with a fountain and fountain spout.
