Take the time

Gotta get there super early people. I recommend taking the trolley or mini bus really cheap and runs most of the day.

This little museum is not expensive but it is worth your time, even if only to escape the crowds at the Palace. There are genuine artefacts and lots of explanations in English. This place is well organised and if you can't get into the palace, a must!

The museum has exhibits that help to explain how the Alhambra was built. There are architectural columns, fountains, lattice windows, doors, tiling, marquetry and ceramics. There are also excellent samples of plasterwork, since the Nazari artisans were experts in this art. There are two stone lions found outside the Alhambra.

Place to be remembered where European men fought and send back home Muslims. Europe is different and I am proud that we where the best and keeping records, hoping the majority will remember the blood of our ancestrals.
