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.

If you like museums, you must visit this one. It is a real treasure. They have special exhibits too and we saw one of the greatest flamenco singer in Granda.

The guides here are very knowledgeable about the history of the Alhambra and this museum is free, included in the price of the main ticket. Interesting background to the way of life back then and some amazing artifacts.

There were beautiful pieces of furniture etc in this place and the admission is free if you have Alhambra ticket. However, there are not much information written beside the pieces so you don't really know their significance.
