With an expert local guide at your side, meander through vibrant Granada Old Town and discover how the city flourished under the architectural influence of the Moors and the Christians.

Make your own way to Plaza Isabel la Católica in the heart of Granada Old Town to meet your guide. Then, set off on a leisurely stroll toward the Royal Chapel (Capilla Real).

As you wander along the ancient streets, ask your guide any questions you have about Granada and its diverse history; the beauty of a private tour is that the commentary can be entirely tailored to your interests. Learn about the city?s beginnings as an Iberian hamlet, and discover how it flourished architecturally during the successive rules of the Moors (Muslims of North African descent) and the Christians.

Pause outside the Royal Chapel and take in the flamboyant Isabelline architecture. As you admire the intricately designed building, listen to your guide talk about Ferdinand and Isabel, the Catholic Monarchs (Reyes Católicos) who conquered the Muslim kingdom of Granada.

Spend a few moments posing for photos outside the chapel and the neighboring Granada Cathedral, then head inside to begin your tour. As you make your way to the ornate altar, the chapel?s main showpiece, crane your neck to take in the gloriously high vaulted ceiling.

Discover how Ferdinand and Isabel commissioned the chapel as their mausoleum. Then, climb down the flight of stairs by the altar to see the beautiful marble monuments and lead coffins that house their remains, as well as those of their daughter, Joan ?The Mad? and her husband Phillip ?The Beautiful.?

Your tour then concludes inside the chapel.
