The Alhambra, as seen through the eyes of specialists. A new programme of guided visits to help visitors view the monument from other perspectives will be starting soon. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday of May and June we will be organizing dif-ferent themed routes, which this year will also be taking in other spaces on the Hill of the Alhambra such as the Rodríguez-Acosta Foundation.
