All my life growing up looking at the photos of this architecture masterpiece. Now being here was all but surreal. Will mosdef come here again. And I must say... if all living soul must come here at least once in one lifetime.

We were very disappointed to find the museum closed. We found the Alhambra did not have any signs of human occupation and hoped the museum might have put this right

The entire location needs many hours to explore fully because of its sheer size. To take in the history of the Alhambra and to appreciate the stunning views from the ramparts - you should allow a lot of time. We took the Alhambra in as part of the city tour which eliminated the long uphill walk from the heart of... More

Visiting Granada - "must see" the museum. Worth the time and day. Make a trip to Alhambra palace, Generalife garden and museum once you got to the city. Good at any time of the year!

The Alhambra is best seen in summer and with few other visitors. Obviously, this is impossible and, even in early January, the palace was busy! Hang back from the tour groups and take in the symmetry, the simplicity and the clever use of water.

This was a fantastic experience, the Alhambra is a truly amazing place. We went on a guided tour and Heni, the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. I don't think we would have enjoyed it quite as much if we had gone on our own.

Check out the Museum, located at the Palace of Carlos V. Really worth the extra effort. Full of the original antiquities of the Alhambra.

Possibly one of the most beautiful, elegant, majestic and intimate groups of buildings I have ever visited, especially the Nasrid Palaces. Definitely the top highlight in Andalucia. We glad we book twice and saw it in two different lights (sunny morning and cloudy winter afternoon). Book ahead via internet.
