See the Various Areas of the Alhambra Complex Accompanied by an English, French or Spanish-Speaking Guide
The Palace of Charles V is an architectural wonder that boasts of a plateresque style design with traces of Gothic and Spanish origin, which was common in the Renaissance era. It is also famous popular for its unique collection of Hispano-Muslim and Nasrid artworks.
The Generalife is also known as the Architect's Garden, is easily one of the oldest examples of Moorish gardens. Cool turquoise water, flower beds, and lush greenery make the Generalife a beautiful sight.
Also visit the Alcazaba, one of the oldest structures of Alhambra. It served both as a fortress as well as a watchtower during the Nasrid rule. Follow it up with a visit to the Nasrid Palaces. While most of the structures have perished over the years, some of them still remain. Few of them being the Mexuar, which was once one of the most prominent parts of the palace, and the Court of Lions (Palacio de Los Leones), and also a rather private area of the palace.
As you step out of the Nasrid Palaces, you can see the Medina, which is not very easily accessible due to its difficult route. This is a citadel that has the remains of several ovens, silos, cisterns, public baths, and workshops, as well as the houses of top government officials, employees, and court servants. You can still see the foundations of several ruins, some of which were reconstructed, standing tall to this day.
