I read the reviews here and it got my attention. I was sadly disappointed. Yes it has history and an eclectic collection…but, the gardens were not what I had imagined. State of decay is evident throughout.

Was fortunate to have a private tour with an architect who works there as I was the only one there. Her English was fluent, as well as her knowledge of history and culture. This is a beautiful spot and worth a visit.

I went to see the gardens as I had read about them years ago. Alas, they were not as spectacular as I anticipated but lovely nevertheless. I had the guide all to myself and asked her to speak iin Spanish as I expected (and got) perhaps a better tour that way. She was incredibly engaging and the villa fascinating. For... More

I went here based on the many good reviews on TripAdvisor and was sadly disappointed. The house is in disrepair. The statutes are copies. The fountains were off. The tour guide was kind and spoke English well enough but didn't have a clue when asked certain questions about the building or the builder. The vistas were nice but you can... More

Rodriguez Acosta was the son of a rah banking family who took up art. This building is a lasting tribute to what he created. The gardens are simply wonderful. I'm not normally a "garden sorta guy" but these are special. The interior has some fine and interesting art and some architectural quirks that are worth a look too - especially... More

An unexpected find over-shadowed by the Alhambra which is on the opposite hillside. Knowledgeable guide in Spanish and in English took on a tour from top floor, and via the gardens down into the basement caves and tunnels. This fascinating building designed and built by Rodriguez Acosta a painter and designer who gave up his painting to build this architectural... More

About twenty minutes walk from the Alhambra Palace, through a lovely shady park, we booked tickets to this museum with our Alhambra tickets & were very glad we did. The visit was great value, with timed access and a guided tour for our party of five from an english speaking guide who was welcoming, knowledgeable & very friendly. It was... More

A went to this museum as the ticket was on a combined entry pass with the Alhambra. I enjoyed my visit here just as much, it is from a more recent time in history & showed what a man with architectural vision (& a huge amount of inherited money) can achieve. it was not at all crowded, I was the...

We accidentally stumbled across this lovely attraction. It is a real gem and well worth the small entrance fee we paid. The architecture and the collections of this foundation are amazing as is the view over Granada. There are some surprises here which adds to the Alhanbra story. Well worth a visit.
