One of the greatest places I've ever visited. Organized, cleaned, well prepared for large groups. The visit was 3 hours long and I don't regret a minute of it. If you don't know plan a trip to get there. Impressive.

Definitely worth a visit, if possible before you visit the Nasrid palaces, so you go in with a bit of a historical background. The volunteer guide was very knowledgeable and the displays were well made. Definitely worth a visit!

We loved the historic buildings, beautiful views of the city, ornate gardens of the Generalife. We didn't like the massive queues or that you can queue for ages only to find the Nazrid palaces (one of the main features of the Alhambra) have reached their footfall quota for the day. If you can, book in advance or buy tickets the... More

When I first saw La Alhambra, I say this is one of the wonders of the world to see before you die. I was not excessive in assessing this place, because what I saw was beautiful, I was grateful to be able to come here to see it. If you have time and money, take time to visit, all will... More

The rare and exquisite beauty of the Alhambra cannot be appreciated from photos. As beautiful as it appears in photos, it is ten times more breath-taking. You will wish you had the place to yourself because you will want to revel in the details, but shut the crowds out and savor all of it. Be sure you are dressed for... More

This is in the Charles V Palace, which is in the public area and can be visited separate from the Alhambra ticket. Public entry is near the bottom of the Alhambra complex, so it is a pretty easy walk from town on heavily shaded pedestrian path. A lot of pottery and container fragments, architectural pieces, and pretty good explanation of... More

You get to see lots of bits and pieces from the Alhambra up close. Not much else but it is free and on site so why not take a stoll through?

The quality of the craftmanship is a pleasure to see, when you think when this was created you realise the skills that the artisans had, even though the didnt enjoy the use of modern power tools it makes it even more fantastic

It is a small museum. Free entrance, but nothing special to notice that you wont see it in all the other palaces of Alhambra. They keep there just fragments and pieces.

We paid for the tickets on the Internet, to secure a time that was convenient and to avoid long lines. The palaces are absolutely beautiful and deserve long hours for in depth visits.
