This place was amazing. It's an old fort and palace, but it's huge and has one interesting place after another. The Islamic design is just gorgeous and the layout and views are fantastic. A few tips: (1) buy tickets in advance, including the Nasrid palace-they sell tickets for specific half hour increments and we were glad we did it online ahead of time. You can pick up the tickets via ATM using the credit card you used to pay at a Caixa ATM (all over Granada). (2) Count on at least half a day if not more. We walked up the hill, which was a trek. We enjoyed it but were pretty exhausted because once you get there, there's a lot of walking, and going up/down stairs in the fort part (which you will not want ot miss). There is very convenient public transportation that will take you there and also taxis--we would probably opt to take the public shuttle up from the Cathedral if we did it again). (3) The audioguide is very good. It covers all the exteriors and interiors and is just the right amount of information. You can rent them there. All in all, a fantastic experience and different than anything we have seen before.
