Probably best seen along with a tour of the Alhambra. Gorgeous building and gardens. The fountains operate via a hydraulic system and the water comes from local rivers and returns to them.

If you see the Alhambra you must see the Generalife. It is a relatively short tour and the gardens are gorgeous.

This palace is a gardener's dream--& the sound of water flowing is everywhere. Truly enchanting! The only drawback is all the stairs.

Beautiful setting with great views of the rest of the Alhambra. Much more peaceful than the Nasrid Palaces so easier to enjoy the experience.

Wonderful extensive gardens with the ever present gentle sound of water trickling along and down through the various areas of the grounds. Beautiful flowers and lovely sitting in the shade beneath orange trees.

As part of the visit to The Alhambra we went on May 21 2015 to The Generalife. They are are the only example of Arab art which gives us an approximate idea of how these gardens used to be, where the Arab spirit, in all its sensually instinctive and improvised construction, was finally carried away.The name 'Generalife' means 'garden of...

The Generalife Gardens and places are just near by the Alhambra complex. It consist of nice well maintained yet medieval look gardens. One can spend an hour and half easily with little pace. If you planning for Alhambra also then may be you can wrap this in an hour
