Most interesting place visited, went there with a tour group booked online and the guide was very knowledgable. Nice to know the history behind the place
WOW! The Alhambra is a feast for the senses - it is one amazing room/building/garden after another and is quite unlike anything I have ever seen. The history just adds to the beauty. We rushed through and it still took us 4 hours. You can easily spend the whole day there getting lost in the ruins, palaces and gardens. The... More
Enough superlatives been written about this monument to the nexus of Moorish and Christian cultures for me to add to them. Suffice to say that the contrast between the refinement and style and sensibilities of the Moors and the clumsy, ponderous style of the conquering Christians couldn't be displayed more strongly. It made me wonder: what other treasures of art... More
This is supposed to be the second most visited tourist attraction in Europe (based on ticket sales) after the Eiffel Tower in Paris. After our visit, it was easy to see why. There are spectacular sights to behold and capture with photos (see attached). We stayed to see the sunset. Glad we went when it was not too crowded (off... More
We bought tickets 2 weeks in advance and still had to stand in line to turn in our paper print out tickets. It was crowded, but we went in off season so I image it can be way worse. We did a lot of walking. Must have comfy shoes as its easily 2-3 hours of walking. It was an expensive... More
ofcourse very beautiful. go by walk, not by bus to the spot from the city. you can enjoy the small water passage flowing down, stores and shops on the passage, guitarists and music while reaching the palace. infact there is a spot on the walking trail from where you could have one of the best photographic view of st nicolas,...

One of the top highlights of our month in Spain. If you’re going to Spain then "The Alhambra" in Granada must be on your must do list. Could spend a day in this place and that's coming from someone who can't sit still for 10min. Amazing place that has been restored just as amazingly don't miss this.
Read about the Islamic influence on Europe before you go- makes it much more interesting. What a fantastic piece of architecture. If you have been to the palace in Istanbul, this is one step up the ladder
A little crowded but worth it , we had a guide which helped explain the history which i think is worth it , the entire place is a wonder and fantastic it is still intact
This was truly the highlight of my Spain trip. Full of poetry and ethereal beauty, Alhambra is most definitely worth the extra detour to Granada.
