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.

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

A beautiful private home with adjacent public, multi-levelled peaceful gardens. Prepare for a lovely stroll among fountains, a stone grotto, an outdoor room of Moorish architecture adjacent to the house with perfect photo opportunities including peacocks! Stunning views of the city and mountains...bring your camera! HINT: Easily accessible from the Hop On/Hop Off bus.

This park was a great find. It is free to enter and there are often not many people there. The views over the city of Granada are beautiful and you can spend a long ti e just walking round the parm and gardens. There are some peacocks who live there too.

A park situated near to the Alhambra. Having been to the Alhambra twice, cost a lot and very crowded. We diverted into the Carmen de los martires. Beautiful park, fountains, water features, ducks, fish, pheasants...and all free. Very quiet and great for a picnic. Frankly nicer and much less touristy than Alhambra and no booking required. Climb to the top... More

This is a site that can be easily missed by those in a hurry to visit the Alhambra, but those lucky enough to find their way through its doors it is a little gem worth the visit.
