Alhambra and Generalife Small-Group Guided Tour in Granada. Skip the line

923 reviews
Granada’s Alhambra limits its daily visitor numbers, so booking ahead is advisable. Plus, exploring the UNESCO-protected complex alone risks missing out on little-known gems and details. This tour gives you it all—a guide to explain the highlights; tours of the Nasrid Palaces and Generalife; priority entry to skip the ticket lines; plus headphones and a smaller-than-average group size so you hear and see more as you explore.

the mezquita is in the albayzin quarter, opposite the alhambra. there is a bus from the plaza nueva, but we walked up from the square up the narrow winding pathways towards the mosque and viewpoint. muslim visitors will want to pray in the mosque, and the ablution facilities were welcome for cooling down after the climb on friday afternoon to get there for jumma prayers. the congregation seemed to be a mix of locals from little morocco, as well as a diverse group of tourists from many nations. the inside of the mosque is very tastefully decorated and in keeping with the local history and culture. the views from the mosque and the adjacent mirador are amazing and unrivalled from any other viewpoint. there are ice-creams and drinks available from local shops. this and the mirador should be part of any trip to granada. it was a 20 minute climb in the beating afternoon sun, but well worth the trouble!

well worth the climb through sacromonte to see this modern mosque with good atmosphere and beautiful interior. views are spectacular from the balcony here and the mirador just adjacent. drinks and ice cream available at local shops to cool down after the short climb through the myriad of narrow cobbled streets and whitewashed houses. we went for jumma prayers - khutba in spanish and arabic. nice atmosphere and cosmopolitan congregation. fans and open windows rather than air con in main mosque. good wudu facilities - grateful to cool down at the same time as it is 40 degrees.

This place has a beautiful garden and stunning views which is less crowded than san mirador right next door. It is a peaceful place to just sit. We actually stayed til sunset and did the congregatitional prayer. Theres a place for women to do ablusions and prayer. The ablusion facilities were so clean maybe the cleanest i have ever come across.

Next to San Nicholas Mirador, Mezquita Mayor de Granada has a beautiful garden with a white Mosque inside. Informational posters to read. I wish that I had felt more welcomed by the people in this lovely setting, but it was still a good experience. Beautiful views for photo opportunities. One vendor in the garden selling helados for 1.50 Euros each. The chocolate and raspberry were delicious.

Situated next to the Mirador San Nicolás - I found the view of the sunset over Granada & the view of the Alhambra at night so much better from here. Nice friendly genuine locals to talk to & try their mint tea for only €1
