Description

CIRCUIT DESCRIPTIONCIRCUIT DETAILSCANCELLATIONS AND INFORMATION

Eastern Andalusia: a history of magnificent kings and kingdoms on the Axares Tour ®.

What we show in the Axares Tour ® circuit is the value of the heritage that has come down to us together with the modernity of the 21st century. A symbiosis that keeps a historical character while offering a variety of current experiences that will not disappoint and will be the origin of lasting memories and bonds for the known charm that each of our destinations exude.

A return to the past and the architectural remains left by the different dynasties that passed through Al-Andalus in an ancient and rich region, heir to the different cultures that inhabited it. The name of this circuit refers to the place chosen by the Muslim nobility of the Nasrid Granada as a residential area during the 13th century.

It is known for its famous Carmenes (Karm), a direct legacy of the beautiful orchards and gardens of that period, beneficial and healthy spaces due to its privileged location on the southern slope of the Albaicín and in front of the wonderful Alhambra.

The experience we offer is a faithful reflection of the beauty and elegance of how the Arabs referred to this neighbourhood called AXARES in their time.
