“Fantastically kept gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

It takes your breath away seeing the fantastic floral displays. Having spoken to the jardineros there are only 17 who keep this place looking like it does. Well done to all.

“Stunning Gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

The Generalife has received some remodelling since our last visit 18 months ago with a large open theatre added.
We took some friends and they were very impressed.
We have visited several times and you always see something new.
A must see (along with the Alhambra) if you are in Granada.

“Stunning Cool Gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Go early and you will find soon cool shady spots you can loose yourself in. The gardens are really well cared for and the view is fantastic over Granada. Take a packed lunch and enjoy.

“Always pretty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

If you are in Granada, this is a must-see, along with the Alhambra. It is part of this visit and you should walk the walk from the Palace and see it. Well worth it!

“I want these gardens!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Now I've seen how to do a courtyard garden with water feature the correct way, I'm going home to start planning. These gardens are lovely, especially on a hot day. Highly recommended.
