If you’ve booked on line, it is best to avoid any hassle by collecting your tickets the evening before from the farthest away gate (and be sure to bring your passports). The security man will allow you past the strap barrier to the ticket counter....More

Hi..The Gate of Justice is the closest to Nasrid.We entered through this gate.You can linger around the courtyard in front of Nasrid or if they dont allow you in just yet at the gates, it is only 5min walk. Enjoy!
