Having visited various historical and cultural sites throughout the world, I'd rate this as one of the top 10 "wonders of the world." The history, culture and condition of this place is incredible. There is a lot to learn about how people can get along - and simply stunning art work, creativity and vistas. If you are anywhere in Europe,... More

I couldnt take photos because my camera couldnt show the beauty. I realised that sometimes just our eyes can see the colours, beauty and all. You need 4-5 hours. Take care about your tickets time. Time is just for entering the palace. Not for the big garden enterance. Garden is big. You have to go before 4 hour your tickets... More

We went to see the Manuel de Falla exhibition. We had no expectations, but it was very good, with film and pictures.

Could be so good, but objects placed poorly with little - or very difficult to see - explanation. Contrast to the excellence of the excellence of el Museo para conocer Andalucia.

One can easily give the museum a skip during the visit to the Alhambra. Not that great and very historic for someone to connect the dots and understand.

We have been to the Alhambra a few times but we have not visited the museum before. What a gem! They have a good range of articles on display including breathtaking wooden artefacts and magnificent tiles. There is lots of information about the different pieces and you can take your time looking around. You won't be disappointed and it is... More

There are 3 parts to visiting 'La Alhambra' which we didn't know at the time of booking our tickets, but as we were staying almost opposite the palace, we decided to get our tickets the evening before - try to do this if you can, so as avoid the queues and be on time. The Palacios Nazaries has quite strict... More

See the museum to cap the visit to one of most stunning palaces in the world. The museum unfortunately does not have much signage or information in English, but the museum pieces do speak for themselves.

We loved this museum. So many interesting items to view from various eras. Stunning pieces. Would have preferred if there was some information in English to give a bit of back ground information, but apart from that, amazing!

Thank Seach
