Explore the Wonders of Granada
The Spanish region of Granada is known for some of the most historically diverse styles of architecture and art. This guided tour will begin with a visit to the Plaza del Carmen, which has gone through multiple transformations in different eras. The ‘old cloister’ was remodeled and only a small part of it is still retained, and the City Hall now occupies much of the Plaza. You will also visit the magnificent cathedral, the Royal Chapel, and the Madrasa.
