Add To Plan

Watch a moving flamenco performance in Granada's old Arab quarter, and then enjoy free time in Granada exploring everything from little-known attractions to those as famous as the Alhambra.

Depart from the pier and drive inland, past the majestic Sierra Nevada National Park and on to Granada, an Andalusian city that reveres flamenco. Upon your arrival in Sacromonte, one of the oldest neighborhoods, you'll be treated to a highly charged, passionate flamenco performance. Through dance, song and guitar music, the seductive gypsy art of flamenco tells an emotional story with themes ranging from love to oppression. Its roots can be traced back more than 200 years, and nowhere is flamenco admired more than in Granada.

After this pure Andalusian experience, you'll transfer to the city center, where you're free to spend the afternoon doing whatever you wish. Tour the landmark Alhambra fortress-palace and its glorious Generalife gardens (advance ticket purchase is highly recommended). Wander the labyrinthine streets and plazas in the historic Albaicin neighborhood, a World Heritage Site where the Moors once resided. Behold the ornate cathedral and the Royal Chapel next door where the remains of Queen Isabella and her husband Ferdinand lie. Or simply spend your time browsing the shops for hand-painted ceramics, designer fashions and leather goods, all of which are extraordinary in Granada.

After approximately 4 1/2 hours on your own, you'll rejoin your coach and escort at the appointed time and place and make the return journey back to Motril. Those who are not on time for the return transfer will be responsible for making their own way back to the ship, at their own expense.

Please note: Walking on this tour is mainly at the guests' discretion during free time. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests due to the transportation used in Granada. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Those wishing to visit religious sites should wear conservative clothing. For port calls of fewer than 9 hours, the amount of free time will be shortened and the tour's total duration will be 7 hours.
