ALHAMBRA

Something very surprising about the Alhambra is to discover that it is not a palace or a group of palaces. It was an independent big city which was begun to be built in the year 1238. It has a walled area of 100.000 m2 (119.600 square yards), divided in three different quarters which is inside a productive zone of 500 hectares (1235 acres). So the Alhambra was, and still is in a kind of way, a whole territory. You can find lovely gardens, original orchards of the 13th Century, amazing views over Granada and astonishing palaces which will seduce you with their magnificent beauty.

Not only does Blanca have deep knowledge of the architecture, history and geography of the Alhambra and Granada, she worked professionally on projects to analyze and restore the Nasrid Palaces and water systems. On top of that, Blanca is quite skillful at communicating the brilliant complexity of the design and environs and how people inhabited the area through the ages. Blanca clearly enjoys sharing her love of the Alhambra and Granada as well as sharing her personal connections to the Flamenco community. With her kindness and enthusiasm, Blanca is a true guide and teacher and I am grateful for the time spent with her.

Our visit to the Alhambra in Granada was one of the highlights of our visit to Spain due to the fabulous half day tour provided by Blanca from Masquetours. Blanca is incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of architecture and history and also very willing to share names of her favourite restaurants and bars. Blanca intimate and personal association with the Alhambra was fascinating too with relatives still owning shops and working inside the village in the same photography business from decades ago. Blanca picked up our interest in certain aspects of the dome design techniques (Murqarnas) and was able to concentrate more on this to really bring the palaces to life and tell us about her work in helping to conserve the palaces. Thank you once again for a terrific day out in Granada. Judy from Australia

Blanca fue nuestra guía en una completísima visita a la Alhambra y en un tour de flamenco e historia de Granada. Nuestros invitados quedaron encantados, y nosotros, granadinos, más. El conocimiento de Blanca sobre la ciudad y su historia es muy amplio, y su forma de transmitirlo, muy buena. Aprendimos muchas cosas y las visitas, a pesar de su extensa duración (4 horas Alhambra y 3 horas flamenco) se nos hicieron muy cortas. Repetiremos sin duda siempre que nos visiten amigos de fuera, muy recomendable.

Por razones laborales este fin de semana hemos estado en Granada y hemos visitado La Alhambra. La visita como no podía ser de otra manera ha estado guiada por Blanca Espigares Rooney de MasQueTours y no puedo dejar de recomendar a quien quiera una visita distinta y llena de elementos que despierten su interés por la historia, por la arquitectura y por la veracidad histórica (que hace unos días yo echaba de menos por aquí, precisamente). La pasión por lo que uno hace es algo que se ve reflejado en el trabajo y que marca sin duda la diferencia entre lo normal y lo bueno. Desde luego la pasión que pone Blanca y su firma hace de la visita a Granada y a la Alhambra una experiencia totalmente recomendable.

Blanco feels like a friend showing us her hometown. We are completely at ease with her and during the trip we talk about many things from cost of living, personal interest & hobbies. We even share travel stories. There was never a moment of quietness, it was all talking like friends do on road trips.

Una suerte que en Granada exista la posibilidad de poder conocer la ciudad de una forma intensa y adaptada a los intereses de cada uno gracias a Masquetours. Nunca una visión general de la ciudad que se visita fue tan profunda ni abarcó tantas visiones.

En otras visitas, si quitas los adjetivos, las cifras y las anécdotas, no te queda nada. Con MasqueTours, ideas y emociones en una experiencia de la ciudad extraordinariamente distinta.

Una manera excepcional de conocer Granada con una mirada culta e inteligente, en las antípodas de las historietas de los guías habituales.
