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.

Nice refuge on a hot day. Nicely laid out gardens and palace buildings. Gets quite busy even in October.

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!!!

The Generalife summer palace is part of the Alhambra and has beautiful gardens and fountains. The elegant white building is set against the hillside and is visible from many parts of the Albaicin and Sacromonte as well.

Like the Alhambra a must-see. The gardens, the palace and the water stairs cannot be described, you have to go for yourself.

Nothing to dislike. The Generalife gardens and views of the Alhambra and Granada itself were great. The visitor program both places is extremely well orfganized and ensures a natural flow of people, so it never felt crowded.
