This old estate has beautiful gardens with a pond and paths throughout the park area. The amazing thing is that it sits high up on the hill crowned by the AL Hambra so every time you step out from under the trees you have magnificent views of Granada. The gardens are quiet and a great place to relax and spend... More

This is a 19th century garden that lies below the Alhambra. It is open in the morning until about 2 p.m. and then from 6-8. If you are headed up to pick up your Alhambra tickets, as I was, it's okay to stop and wander around, but I wasn't over the moon about it.

The Alhambra is not the only place worth a visit on the top of Sabika's hill : with its lovely (if a little bit forgotten and overlooked) gardens, pools and fountains, it's a great place to chill out and rest after the rat race that is visiting the Alhambra sometimes. And moreover, the Carmen de los Martires has a free... More

After the crowds at the nearby Alhambra, the Carmen de los Martires is a lovely cool park. The park has fountains, shady paths, garden follies, and peacocks. It would be a perfect location for a paseo on a hot afternoon. It also has a beautiful view over the valley and up to the mountains.

It´s just on the other side of the hill of the Alhamabra, you just have to cross the beautiful forrest of the Alhambra. It´s a really nice and big arabic garden, nobody who vistits granada should miss it.

If you are in the area (up the hill, near the main entrance to the Alhambra) this is a lovely garden to get away from the hassle of all the tourist coaches going past. But for some reason you can't get to it from the main road, where the gate is padlocked. Instead you have to follow the signs to... More

A kind man directed us to this lovely garden after we had missed the Alhambra. It's free, almost empty and full of pretty fountains and ornamental gardens. There are peacocks too.

When you want a few moments (or a few hours) to relax, read, or pray, this quiet garden is perfect! It's opening hours are limited, so make sure that you know them when you go.
