This place used to be beautiful I guess, but it is poorly maintained. Eg dirty ponds, broken fountains, etc. Don't waste your time here.

Me and my husband heard about this on an old article on the telegraph. The gardens are impeccable and there's a new surprise around every twist and turn. Allow a couple of hours to meander around and have a relaxing time away from the hustle and bustle. We didn't take any snacks or drinks otherwise we would have stayed longer... More

These gardens, created in the romantic era, are beautiful and incredibly photogenic. Every time I show someone around Granada, I take them to the Carmen de los Martires gardens, which are right next to the Alhambra. Perfect for a Sunday when everything else is closed.

This is a lovely spot to chill/wander around in if you want to kill some time before going to the Alhambra and get off the tourist trail especially with a tiny bit of Moorish architecture. It was actually more of a highlight for me than the Alhambra as it was a lovely surprise. There's a cheap little, no-frills cafe on... More

You find the park beside Alhambra and I think not many people find this lovely place. Its very big and you could walk and see a lot of flowers and trees and you have benches and places to sit for take sun or read a book. Its very few people in the park so it the perfect place for rest.... More

This large and beautiful carmen (walled garden) is a great place to relax. It is close to the Alhambra but away from the crush of tourists.

A visit to Carmen de los Martires, is like stepping back in time. The best way to visit the site is the C3 bus from Plaza Isabel la Catholica, this is the plaza with the large black statue of Isabel and Columbus, in the center of Granada. The same bus will tak you to the ticket office of the Alhambra.... More

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
