The Court of the Lions is as detailed as the other buildings with 8 differently decorated lions. The fountain is served from 4 different rooms surrounding it, each one beautifully decorated.

This is definitely worth the queue! Beyond the lion fountain, the architecture is beautiful with detailed calligraphy and amazing ceilings. All is very well preserved. As a timed ticket is required, there are few people inside.

If you have a chance to get a ticket, go. Otherwise, the rest of the Alhambra is also worth the visit.

The architecture is magnificent, and worth the time to see it. It's a self-guided tour, so take as long or little as you need. The court of lions is incredible, especially if you remember how old it is, and what kind of tools the craftsmen...More

The Alhambra is truly a marvel and the Nasrid Palaces are simply too gorgeous to even do them any justice by trying to describe them with words. The Court of the Lions is the highlight of the visit in the Nasrid Palaces and we could...More

This is a not-to-be missed part of any visit to the Alhambra. The Alhambra's Moorish architecture is simply amazing and the Court of the Lions is a highlight.

Yes we paid to get in as the other reviewers have mentioned. We also had a guide and it was totally worth it. I don't remember the cost. You have to go in at a designated time on your ticket so check online.
