These gardens were a delightful place to stroll. We went in the spring and really enjoyed the place. It is on top of a hill and has nice views of the area. Beautifully manicured gardens!

Make sure you bring very comfortable walking shoes and a camera. There are beautiful views of Sacromonte and the Albaycín. The fountains and pools throughout the gardens are amazing being... More

If you begin your Alhambra tour with the Charles V Palace and do it in sequence, then this is a perfect way to end your half day spent there.

First stop on our Alhambra visit so early morning sunshine. Beautiful gardens well worth the trip. Ticket numbers are limited so does not feel too overcrowded.

Just a peaceful place to lose yourself! Fantastic views of the palaces. Always something new to see on every visit. There is nothing to dislike! You can avoid the large parties because the area is so large and the restrictions to entry. Wonderful place one we will continue to visit for years to come.

It is a beautiful palace which used to be the summer residence of the Alhambra. The views are beautiful. You see Generalife quite quickly but I still think it was worth a visit.

The gardens have been taken care very well including all of the buildings. It was spring and everything was just really beautiful. It would be nice to live there!
