I enjoyed wandering around these gardens early one morning taking in the views and beauty of the gardens. It was quiet and peaceful without the crowds and a nice way to spend an hour or two when in Granada.

The Carmen is very pretty with beautiful architecture and wonderful gardens, high up with views of the city. In some ways, I liked these gardens even better than the Generalife in the Alhambra. There are fewer tourists, and the gardens are large and accessible. You...More

After the busyness of Granada and the Alhambra this place offers space to relax in beautiful gardens with water features, grottos and art. Best of all it is free entry. We explored for a couple of hours and enjoyed.

Poetry in the form of a garden or music in the form of light... No wonder Manuel de Falla, who lived just next door, composed such enticing music!

Nestled in the hills below the popular (and very busy Alhambra) this set of Gardens is certainly worth a look. There are walks along pretty flowerbeds with spectacular views over Granada. There are arches, statues and a large duck pond with some of the clearest...More

So close to the Alhambra, but a world away. Very few visitors, peaceful shaded gardens. Reasonably well-kept. A pleasant place to while away an hour.
