Generalife is so very beautiful, it takes your breath away! Note for families with kids - a lot of stairs, not for a stroller (we took our stroller and had to basically carry it everywhere!)

This is an extension of the Alhambra visit as it leads straight to it . The gardens are vast and there are many fascinating buildings and fountains etc to view as well , you could spend hours wandering around here . If you able make sure you walk up to this as it is far more interesting than sitting on... More

The gardens are the highlight of Generalife which is basically an extension of the Alhambra. The palace itself falls obviously short to the Alhambra with only a few rooms, but the gardens themselves show a side long gone for the Alhambra where hardly anything of the original gardens itself is left after alterations.

One of the most beautiful gardens in the world. It is a true wonder that no one with the chance to see it, should miss. Wont regret.

Comming to Granada - is obligiatory to visit this place. Magnificent monument of beauty and time. Standing together with Alhambra the Generalife creates the main monument oа Granada and Andalucia region. Recomend for all ages!
