Even in October, there are hundreds of us - everywhere, all doing selfies on sticks. Nonetheless, a pleasant walk amongst the gardens and architecture, if not a tad overcrowded.

Don't miss this section of the Alhambra, tucked away to the left as you return back uphill towards the main entrance. There are brilliant views of the town and the Alhambra

It's a summer palace of the kings. It's modest, but still very impressive with its gardens and fountains.

the gardens get busy too so make sure you visit early in the day. Also take a seat in a bench and soak up the atmosphere. It's a lovely garden.

This garden is an opposite side of Alhambra palace but they have common entrance. You can visit this site with Alhambra general admission ticket. If you use wheelchair or you have stroller may me a little difficult to visit every places.

The gardens are indescribably beautiful, and the views over Granada are just breathtaking. If you're in Granada, you must visit both the Alhambra and Generalife--unforgettable!!!
