We booked the Small Group to Alpejurra tour. The tour is a great value and well worth the money and the time. It was a very long and full day. We learned much about the area, visited beautiful mountain towns, tasted local foods, and enjoyed mountain vistas. Our guide, Gonzalo, was a pleasure and fun to spend the day with. He communicated well in English. Highly recommended.

I desperately needed tickets to the Alhambra and they were booked out weeks before my trip : ( I could only get tickets to the Genaralife but not Nasrid Palaces. All the planing and expense for my trip to Granada would have been in vain if not for the help of Lilly. We ended up getting the Granada card with guided tour of Alhambra for 2. It was a lot more than I had intended to spend as I had not wanted a tour. However I was so incredibly happy that I went with Discovering Spain. We saved so much by going with them directly rather than an online company. Our guide Jesus is an art historian with so much of passion, talent and knowledge. He gave so much colour and depth to our tour. He was patient and interested in what we wanted to do. He went at our pace (my Mum is 71), and tailor’s the tour to your interests, and was a real gentleman. Lilly was super helpful with local tips and a very prompt and good communicator. What I like most about Lilly was that she was so helpful and professional and didn’t try to sell me something I didn’t want or need. We did end up making pretty good use of the Granada Card and the Alhambra tour was the most memorable experience my Mum and I have had in the longest time. Thank you both Lilly and Jesus, you guys helped make our Granada trip incredible.

Description

Starting from the city of Granada, and less than 20 minutes away, we will arrive at the archaeological site of the Roman villa of Salar. It is a one-day trip to see first hand one of the most important Roman houses on the Iberian Peninsula.

Its exceptional state of conservation will allow us to admire some of its main rooms, such as the central patio, the bedrooms or the dining room. The good state of conservation of the Roman mosaics is the most impressive part of the visit. Do you want to know what they symbolize? You will find from hunting scenes to mythological ones. Undoubtedly, they are the perfect examples to arouse curiosity about the history of this town.

After visiting the archaeological site, and the excavations that are progressing every year in the Roman villa of Salar, we will go to the interpretation center and tourist office of Salar. In this place everything will make even more sense and we will delve even deeper into the history of this house inhabited between the 1st and 6th centuries. We will tell you how this home was forgotten and remained unknown until it was rediscovered almost by chance in 2004. A fascinating story!

Afterwards, we will give you some free time so that you can visit the beautiful town of Salar. You can also take advantage of this time to enjoy the exquisite gastronomy of the area.
