I don't understand why this is not more often mentioned in guide books. The gardens are beautiful; with glorious peacocks walking around. There are also some dramatic views of the valley... And it's free too so grab a book and take some peace and quiet here for a little while

A really beautiful garden which is great to wander around. Away from the centre and all the tourists. Great views and atmosphere.

Just across from the Alhambra is an antidote to the crowds. These gardens are really lovely. A haven of peace and tranquility.

A lovely stroll through the serene gardens was perfect for a New Years Day outing. Bit of an uphill walk from the city centre so if you are unable to walk up lots of steps then take a taxi.

Dry land in November. Large expanse of land. No map, no one to ask questions. Did not see inside of houses. Wonderful pond of fishes and ducks. Not very interesting compared to other Karma's but perhaps beautiful in summer.

A little chapel, house of Carmelite nuns, very quit, they pray there. Outside is a very nice garden, with high palms, fountains, very nice vegatation, peacocks, ducks, for a relaxing walk, you can make nices pictures.

Beautiful gardens and a small palace with moorish architecture and tile work. But with 1% of the crowds of the Alhambra. Carmen de los Mártires is where I go to relax and write. Free entrance. Last time i was there, one of the resident peacocks opened his feathers for me. Make sure to set aside some time to stroll through... More

Cooling gardens , roaming peacocks, palm trees and rose beds, lovely views and hardly anyone there, as everyone goes right to the Alhambra, just on the opposite side of the road to the Alhambra and worth a little stroll..

I have visited this garden before and found it very pleasant. I checked the timetable with the town hall and received their print out advising that opening times were on the summer timetable from 16 September. I visited with a group of friends on 15 October to be refused entry and told that the winter timetable began on 15 October!... More
