Very big and intrigued in design. You can see far away from its top level of garden, breath-taking view.

Beautiful gardens, fountains and water features - also look out for the amphi-theatre where musical performances are scheduled in Summer evenings.

A fabulous location to get some of the best views of Granada and to start the tour of the Alhambra. Don't forget to download the app which provides a guided tour of the area. A good alternative if you don't want to have the audio guide.

These gardens are attached to the Alhambra. But whereas the Alhambra is all about pomp and majesty, the gardens are tranquility itself. There is water everywhere too, from small ponds fed by fountains, to running water down 'handrails' on staircases to keep the air cool in summer. Magnificent.

The gardens attached to the Alhambra are refined and quiet, and great place to slow down and chill. Unfortunately, we did not have a lot of time to do that on the tour. Plan to return to the gardens, or do it last, if you have a choice.

I loved walking in this area of the Alhambra. We visited on a gorgeous fall day that made the time spent in this fantastic garden absolutely enchanting. The attention to detail shows as one walks from one beautiful part of the garden to another. I was very glad to have had an opportunity to visit.
