I've been there so many times. I fall in love with Generalife. It is a wonderful summer palace and amazing building. If you would like to visit Granada, you have to see Generalife.

As with most tourists, we visited the Generalife after going through the Alhambra. We essentially spent most of an entire day at those sites. The tree-lined paths, exquisite flower beds, pools and decorative fountains are awesome. Vistas out to the Alhambra and over the city are spectacular. If possible, take time to sit and enjoy the scene visually, the fragrance... More

The buildings and gardens are wonderful. There are a few shady spots to shelter from the hot sun in summer. Highly reccomended.

Stunning gardens and palace part of the Alhambra complex. Excellent examples of maurish engineering with running water in the hand rails of the stairs.

Stunning place to visit as a complement to the Alhambra. Beautifully planned and maintained gardens and very interesting to learn how water was channelled to reach all areas of this amazing place. Well worth a visit.

Not to be missed! Honestly, one of the highlights of the Alhambra. Great for families with kids - the children can enjoy a little freedom and enjoy exploring..

If you visit la Alhambra, you must visit Generalife gardens. However, you should have care of hot, there are shade zones but also many places without any shade. When I was a child, i enjoyed this parte more than the palaces.

Remember to go - so quiet and beautiful! Very hot during summer so remember water. You are not allowed to bring food to Alhambra - nice lunch at Hotel America inside the area.
