If you love beautiful scenery and architecture you will not be disappointed in visiting this place. It is rich with history and culture. La Alhambra was probably one of the highlights when I visited Granada. Highly recommend it!

At Charles V Palace, my attention was focused on the huge inner circular courtyard with its 2 colonnaded levels. This attraction was located within the Alhambra site for which there was an entry fee, but, once inside the site, the Charles V Palace and the Alhambra Museum, located somewhere on the ground floor of the palace, had no additional charge....

We stay every year in Malaga and the old palace of Alhambra in Granada is easily reached from the Costa its about a two - three hour drive depending on the traffic.

Easy to miss with everything else going on at the Alhambra, but the museum was very well organized and puts everything you've seen in a little bit of context. It's small and a quick visit, but worth the time.

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.
