Marcel Proust said that the true voyage of discovery consists, not in searching for new landscapes, but in looking with new eyes …

And that is really our goal with this experience: To show you the famous “Alhambra and the Generalife” from another perspective. To uncover its hidden message to the world.

Because history and legend intermingle in this jewel of the Nasrid Dynasty of Al-Andalus that perfectly combines water, light, architecture and vegetation.

Do you want to know the symbolism behind each of these elements? Esotericism, sufism, astrology, mythology … Interesting, right?

The walls and fountains of the Alhambra are actually a book full of poetry, religion and political propaganda, where we can also read the function of its rooms through the words of a beautiful woman who speaks with a delicate voice to the visitor.

Together we will experience the same overwhelming feeling of those ambassadors who came to visit the Nasrid king and his representation of paradise on earth …

Thousands of people come to the Alhambra every year … Do they all return home knowing its secrets? Maybe they didn’t visit it with us ????
