Meet your Spanish-speaking guide near Granada Cathedral, and then head inside the religious monument for your tour. Built on the grounds of the city?s old Nasrid mosque, the cathedral was considered as a symbol of power when Christians seized power in the late 15th century.

The cathedral?s architecture, graceful white walls and Carrara marble features are renowned as masterpieces of the Spanish Renaissance and Gothic periods, and your guide will point out the building?s aesthetic highlights as you walk around. Admire the golden altar and its sharp contrast against the black-and-white checked floor, and then wander around the sacristy to see Flemish paintings that once belonged to Queen Isabella ? one of Spain?s Catholic monarchs whose remains are buried inside Granada\'s Royal Chapel, a short walk away.

Leave the cathedral and wander through town to the Royal Chapel where the tombs of Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand are found. Learn about other famous Spaniards ? Joan the Mad and Phillip the Handsome ? whose final places of rest lie within the chapel mausoleum, and admire the chapel\'s interiors as you explore. A sombre yet impressive spectacle, the Royal Chapel is resplendent with white Carrara marble as the stone?s purity is said to represent the personalities of the people buried there. Your tour then finishes outside the Royal Chapel.
