    We enjoyed our afternoon visit and were pleasantly surprised after reading the reviews on here. There was a bit of queuing but nothing too onerous. Yes you have to show your passport a couple of times but it’s your equivalent entry ticket and you show it to leave so they can log your departure. The staff were pleasant enough and the guy at the Nasrid Palace queue was quite flexible letting people in past their time slot. We arrived half an hour earlier and had to wait despite being at the front of the queue. What we didn’t like was the hard sell from a guide at the entrance telling us we couldn’t do a decent tour without her! We were happy to wander around at our own pace with a bit of help from Google to answer any questions. Take water bottles, there’s plenty of places to refill.

    The Generalife Gardens are absolutely beautiful. Especially during the heat of the day you can step into the gardens and enjoy the cool shade and breeze.

    It's a beautiful area to walk around with an incredible view of the city and the Alhambra at the top of the hill. Would highly recommend going at dusk for the sunset. Just absolutely stunning.

    I dare say this view is more impressive than the interior of the palace complex itself. Red mini bus stops steps away.

    Absolutely stunning! Loved this place, was in awe of the beauty. The scripture, architecture - it's beautiful, exquisite.

    We had a wonderful stay at this cheerful, clean, and well furnished apartment. It was nice to come home to the air-conditioning, and the lovely ambiance after exploring the city of Granada and the famous Alhamba Palace. The kitchen was well equipped and even included a dishwasher and a washer and dryer. Roberto was very warm and welcoming and quickly answered any questions we had. The apartment is beautiful and there is a view of the Alhambra from the living room window. It was quiet there but still close to the center of the city. We would go back there in a heartbeat.

    Beautiful place to visit, interesting to see the actual sarcophagi underground . Worth downloading the audio guide for phone.

    While a significant section seemed to be closed during our late August visit, the experience was nonetheless enjoyable.

    We caught the twice daily outdoor birds-of-prey exhibition shortly after entering and despite our poor Spanish caught the gist of what was said and enjoyed the show. An owl circled my head (I'm tall) and the eerie silence reminded me of the time an owl in the wild did the same to me at twilight and had me wondering about ghosts until I saw it perched just above me.

    The standout to us was the taxidermic display that finds large groups of predator(s) encountering prey mounted together as if suspended in air with mere points of contact.

    The gardens were fair to explore.

    Walking amongst the collection of religious art, nothing prepares you for the stunning exquisite decoration of the main hall with its sumptuous paintings and craftsmanship. though many say that the monastery and the Alhambra should compete for the top position, this isn't fair as they are both top of their respective class's for architecture and beauty, they're just in different classes.

    Nicest area in the Albaicin area. Regular buses into town also the hop on hop off train. Enjoy the walk looking up at the people in the Alhambra looking down or stop at one of the many places offering food, drinks, tapas, icecreams etc.

    This is a famous street in Granada for talk a long promenade to take in the beauty of the city. You will pass some great restaurants for refreshments. However, it is for looking at the old houses, the stream and scenic views of Alhambra in the distance that dominates the skyline. There are various tourist shops and a venue to watch traditional flamenco dancing. It has a charm as you dodge the taxis and buses that frequent the street. The cobblestones help to transport you to ancient times and you can only but wonder about days gone by.

    Utterly beautiful - the cloisters, the rooms, the buildings are all very lovely - and then you enter the church... wow. It's simply breathtaking.

    Wow - we were blown away by the gardens of this lesser known museum in Granada. It is situated close to the Alhambra and well worth a visit.
    Our guide William was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and took delight in surprising us with the eclectic mix of architecture and detail that the gardens and tunnels had to offer.
    We visited simply because a ticket was included within our Alhambra package but we were so pleased that we had taken the time to do so.
    Keep up the great William - you are a star!

    An intimate, wonderful way to experience Flamenco during December 2021. We found some reviews on line and decided to try La AlboreA when we made a quick trip to Granada from Madrid. Very passionate and authentic and enjoyed this group of 4. The guitarist is very talented. There were a few foreigners in the audience but also quite a few spaniards vacationing.
