Recommendation:1. You need 4 hrs.to see Alhambra.2.Better to buy the ticket for Morning hrs because later afternoon you can make trips by bus around the old city and Gipsy area too.3 If you have a ticket for afternoon time frame buy a ticket to Palacios Nazaries for early time. 4. Buy tickets on line and as early as you can.

Worth the walk up the hill. Great views of the Alhambra with the snow capped mountains in the background. It was however crowded and there were lots of vendors trying to sell things. We visited on a Saturday afternoon so perhaps it is less busy on a weekday.

One does not need to spend more than an hour at the Museum. Merits a visit to provide more information on the history of Alhambra.

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.
