What a beautiful place to visit. So much to see and admire. The history of the Moors their architecture and life in this place really left an impact on the Spanish culture.

Reasonable museum having some of the original items from the Alhambra. Gives a general idea of the history of the area with pre Alhambra finds. There is some information in each room in English. Interesting add on to a day at the Alhambra but not worth visiting on its own.

I did not expect it so beautiful. It is incredible to see what they achieved during their period about art. We enjoyed so much the tour and the beautiful places we visited.

I bought the tickets ahead and had time reserved to see the garden of Nasrid. The flow of people was just fine and it's understandable it's summertime and the crowd is inevitable. The place is phenomenal. I enjoyed the Generalife and the Nasrid the most. The audio guide was sufficient enough to get the history of the place.
