Everything perfect. Visiting the place allows us to understand and live the great moment of older spanish way of life in going through history and culture. Everything has been preserved in their origins.

While the visit was pleasurable, none of the best known Spanish Maestros is represented here. As a consequence, we were practically alone in the museum on a day in which otherwise Alhambra was as populated as usual.

Gives a sense of what the Alhambra palaces would have been like when they were lived in - furniture, pottery, rugs.

The Alhambra is magnificent and beautiful. To see the combination of architecture from the Moors and the Christians is impressive. The walk to the Alhambra was uphill and beautiful.

Fascinating! Brilliantly maintained. If you do nothing else, but visit Alhambra then your trip would have been worthwhile!

Sited within the Palace of Charles the 5th. At first I thought it was going to be yet another depressing art museum full of dark religious paintings. In reality, you walk through well lit rooms, well signed and a different theme in each area. From the early paintings and sculptures through the 20th century to Contemporary art. We enjoyed our...

The museums small but interesting all the same , but nothing here that is. Vital to your visit to the Alhumbra. It's more about art.

Particularly liked Ortiz, Reya (?) and the... More
