A hot day in Granada & after a walk from the city up to Alhambra, our tour started in Generalife. Generalife is amazing, & although much of the original construction has been ruined what remains plus what has been constructed is fantastic.

Beautiful gardens with marvellous views of the Alhambra and the city of Granada below. Mind you, most of the gardens are modern and not from the arabic times.

We spent around an hour in these beautiful and huge gardens. The main building is lovely too and some great views of the Alhambra and Granada. Really relaxing and idyllic (despite the wads of tourists!).

The Generalife gardens are very nice. We clubbed them with Alhambra and Nasrid Palace visit. So it was a nice way to relax after walking around at Alcazaba, Nasrid Palaces etc..

Well maintained gardens & being renovated at the time of our visit. Inside the palace was interesting but being at the end of a long tour ( 3 1/2 hours) we were glad to leave with nothing further to see.
