If you are an art lover this is a place to visit. There is a garden tour and the real Palace. Garden is beautifully captured and has a breathtaking city view from the hill. Don't forget to check the Palace at night. They re-open after sunset.

This is a must if you visit Granada! Me and my friends took our time looking around and taking pictures. I'd say you should make it a day trip to truly enjoy calmly and peacefully. Also make sure to buy the tickets ahead of time because it's a popular attraction! The day we went some people in line couldn't get... More

Not the ideal month to visit the Alhambra! A very hot day towards the end of July. The tour takes a good three hours and culminates with the most impressive part of all. Buildings are fascinating as are the grounds and gardens and amazing how they diverted water to that particular area all those years ago. We could not get... More

Everything perfect. Visiting the place allows us to understand and live the great moment of older spanish way of life in going through history and culture. Everything has been preserved in their origins.

While the visit was pleasurable, none of the best known Spanish Maestros is represented here. As a consequence, we were practically alone in the museum on a day in which otherwise Alhambra was as populated as usual.

Gives a sense of what the Alhambra palaces would have been like when they were lived in - furniture, pottery, rugs.
