I love these gardens as they're not overrun with tourists like the Generalife is. They're beautiful and you definitely get a feeling of peace and serenity, as there are usually few other people there. Not far from the Alhambra, but it feels like a world away.

We visited this villa waiting for our visit to the Alhambra. It's great to explore the neighbourhood, it's free (although you have to climb a lot before you get there!) and has a beautiful garden and patio for pictures! :-)

We followed advice from the Tourist Information Office and took bus C3 till the last stop (Alhambra), intending to walk down the hill and explore a few places on the way. This was the first point in our itinerary and we were very glad we got here. We walked in this beautiful garden seeing only another couple during our stay.... More

This is a perfect place for wandering, taking great pictures, and letting your kids run off any excess energy. Be sure to visit Carmine de Los Martires early in the morning before other tourists. These gardens are free, more extensive than Generalife, and are wonderful to have all to yourself.

My daughter, who spent the Fall 2015 Semester studying at the University of Granada took us to her favorite site in the city of Granada - Carmen de los Martires. It is located at the top of a hill overlooking the Alahambra and provides a panoramic view of the city below. The gardens are themselves beautiful and very well maintained.... More

What a beautiful place. Hidden away, as so many of Granada's treasures are. Peaceful gardens, an elegant house, a pretty pond, winding walks and peacocks! The latter really are an added attraction. They strut proprietorially around and will occasionally 'pose' for your camera if you are lucky! Located just opposite the Alhambra through the wooded area. Allow a morning or... More

Stumbled in here after walking up the hill intending to go to Alhambra, and very glad we did. This is a quiet, mostly visitor-free garden which -- if you walk all the way up -- gives a nice view of Granada and the Alhambra. Just be prepared that if you do this and then go to the Alhambra you will... More

I didn't plan to visit it but I am glad I did. In contrast to Alhambra's crowds there was almost nobody.It is a place of serenity and rest though a little bit poorly managed.

There is no much flowers - but in case you pass by, it's worth to visit. It has many levels- so it' s better you start from top going downside . In the middle therr is a nice lake with a small tower (you can enjoy a nice view on Granada from the top)

Beautiful gardens, best for a relaxing day, far from the city noise. It would have been nice if it were open at night also, but there are no lights in the park (it closes at 8 in the evening).
