We started our walk around the gardens early and it had been raining overnight, this gave a fresh appearance to the hard landscaping. The flower borders at this time of year are past their best but were still magnificent. The views are stunning from the terraces and the viewing tower and we particularly liked the water staircase.

An absolute Must. Find out the relation of gardens to heaven and consider it is all hand done, then just enjoy the scent and colours of the garden. Take an insurance policy out against being bewitched!

Generalife is also a must see visit when in Granada, plan your visit in advance and early in the day since it gets busy.

Our 3-hour-plus tour of the Alhambra left us pretty tired by the time we got to Generalife and climbed 40 more stairs. But some visitors did it with strollers! It's worth the look since you're already there. But it's really more of the same.

We took a tour of all Alhambra and the guide started with the Generalife gardens, it surprise us how big is the city and the beautiful gardens, for us this visit tough us a lot of history and we appreciated so much the Arabic construction it was outstanding. The views also amazing.

Visiting the Generalife is included in the tour when you book your Alhambra visit with a tour company. We paid 65 euros per person for a small group tour, available in different languages, which started at 10 am at the Welcome Center of the Alhambra. We visited the Generalife and the Alhambra gardens before visiting the Alhambra itself. Although we... More

It's impossible to visit Granada and miss el Generalife, with his beautiful gardens and his stunning views. Recommended the visit during the law season and in the early morning, when it's possible to immerse yourself in the atmosphere and in the nature all around.

By far the best section of the Alhambra, with scenic vistas, immaculate gardens, and spectacular construction. This area has the most detailed history on the audio guide, is the most widely accessible, and is cool to walk through amongst the trees and water features. The gardens are truly spectacular and provide a glimpse into the life of the royals who... More

Try and include this on your tour of Alhambra, it's a hike but worth it. Note that all the gardens and fountains use water from the ancient aqueducts.
