A small museum in the basement of the King Charles V palace shows not comprehensive but really interesting collection of Arab objects recovered during the Alhambra restoration from columns, friezes, relieves, and carved doors to interior decorations, ceramics, and jewelry.

Can be a bit windy in March so remember a jacket/scarf! Staff was friendly! Views are incredible! Make sure to go to all of the palaces and not just one!

This museum is free to enter with your Alhambra entry ticket. It is not huge but has some interesting exhibits which help you to understand a bit more about the history of the site and its previous inhabitants.

The Alhambra lived up to its reputation. The palaces are grand, the water features well placed; the workmanship. Next time I'll stay at one of the hotels (the Parador in the convent or the small B&B) within the complex. Lots of walking but plenty of places to rest. Take water. Enjoy!

Good to get a bit of background on the cultural aspects of the people that inhabited the Alhambra over the years. Some of the art work that is preserved in the museum is amazing! Free to enter on your Alhambra ticket!

The Alhambra is a must do for anyone visiting Spain. The Town of Granada, is totaly quaint and beautiful. The Alhambra is a highlight but you will need at least half the day.

One of the biggest and most spectacular palace complex I've ever been. We spent there half-day in July and we didn't have enough. We've been on July and waited just 10 min for tickets.
