Do not confuse the Museum with the Alhambra itself. It is housed in the palace built by Carlos I near the Palacios Nazaries. The structure is worth a quick walk around inside...but not much more....unless you are researching Moorish art in the Museum itself. The Fine Art Museum and selected exhibitions on the second floor can be bypassed.

The beauty of the Alhambra Palaces is unbelievable, just make sure that you book your tickets to the palaces in advance on the web.

You cannot come to Granada and leave without seeing the Alhambra. Beautiful, beyond belief. But don't turn up and expect to get in. Entrances are now limited in number, and you have to prebook, at your hotel or on-line.

In the Alhambra complex of one of the palaces, and free to EU visitors this is a tasteful and stylish collection that is well worth a look. Check the days and times of opening carefully as they are complex and typically Sanish!

If you are an art lover this is a place to visit. There is a garden tour and the real Palace. Garden is beautifully captured and has a breathtaking city view from the hill. Don't forget to check the Palace at night. They re-open after sunset.

This is a must if you visit Granada! Me and my friends took our time looking around and taking pictures. I'd say you should make it a day trip to truly enjoy calmly and peacefully. Also make sure to buy the tickets ahead of time because it's a popular attraction! The day we went some people in line couldn't get... More

Not the ideal month to visit the Alhambra! A very hot day towards the end of July. The tour takes a good three hours and culminates with the most impressive part of all. Buildings are fascinating as are the grounds and gardens and amazing how they diverted water to that particular area all those years ago. We could not get... More
