Meet your friendly local guide at Alhambra Viajes Agency, and then set off on your 2.5-hour walking tour around the city’s Albaicin neighbourhood to discover its best tapas bars. Spain’s passion for small-plate tapas meals is believed to have originated in the 13th century when King Alfonso decreed it law that bars must serve food with drinks. The bar owners grew elaborate with their offerings over the years, prompting the tantalizing tapas scene that is seen in Granada today. The exact itinerary will be decided on the day of your tour by your guide; however you will definitely visit at least three of Granada’s best tapas bars to feast on small plates of specialties like classic paella and Spanish omelet (may vary depending on availability). Alongside the food, savor wine, draught beer or soft drinks (one glass in each bar) and enjoy tapas just as the Spanish do! On your way from bar to bar, your guide will point out some of Granada’s top historical sights, too. Learn of Granada when it ruled by the Moors (Spain’s bygone Muslims) on a stroll past Plaza Nueva and the Royal Chancery of Granada; see where the city’s present-day Muslims hang out at Calderería Vieja, a bustling street lined with tea houses; and hear of local Muslim prayer traditions on a visit to the Church of San José (outside only) . Marvel at the Mudejar-style architecture of Santa Ana Church, and admire views of the UNESCO-listed Alhambra palace complex and mountains of Sierra Nevada from Mirador San Nicolás. Look out for the cármenes (grand houses) and Arabic cisterns that typify the streets of Albaicin, and learn all about the changes to the neighborhood since the days of the Moors. After 2.5 hours exploring the area and its beloved tapas bars, walk back to the start point where your tour finishes.
