Was part of my Alhambra guided tour as it is located right next to it. Smaller scale than the Alhambra but interesting none the less. It used to be the site for commerce or retail during the region of the Sultans and early Catholic monarchy. Just like the Alhambra tour this needs a lot of planning especially if you're not... More

This was my third time visiting the Generalife and each time it becomes more and more impressive to me. It is unlike any other monument I have visited.

As a part of Alhambra this place has some beautiful gardens to walk through. Its a beautiful place but if you are visiting Granada for a short time make sure you buy tickets in advance.

Amazing place to visit - just what you would expect. Wonderful gardens and outside space - make sure you leave enough time. Get a Granadacard - I ordered ours on the internet and picked up from the city centre when we arrived.

If you have the Alhambra ticket, don't miss these gardens. Although they are quite a walk, it is worth it for the views.
