Quick visit during our Alhambra Tour. A 10-15 minute tour is plenty in this air conditioned museum. It is a nice respite from the 45 C degree (113 F) weather outside.

The museum is very nice, filled with great things. Its just the fact that the Alahmbra itself is so tiring, i had little energy to explore it.

OK for a quick visit but there's not much there and 10-15 minutes is all the time it will take to see everything.

Went here a few years ago with my parents and we loved it. The views are amazing and the architecture is stunning. It's especially good if your interested in history like me, though some others might get bored. Definitely a must visit for those who like their Spanish history!

This is a must-see place! Alhambra is absolutely gorgeous with a stunning view, beautiful architecture, and spectacular gardens. Skipping this landmark would be a shame! Pictures definitely don't do it justice.
