Loved tramping around the grounds and imagining life in the past. Huge grounds. Great for archeological buffs.

This place is beautiful. I found resemblance of the architecture and the wall ornament with the Alhambra. The entrance fee is cheap and not too crowded like the Alhambra which make me enjoying taking many beautiful pictures here.

Beautiful old buildings with immense historical importance. To walk through these walls was an experience I will cherish. Here too the architecture and location are stunning. Well done to those preserving these treasures.

Amazing walk up hill and architecture, great gardens, nice roman theatre at bottom of hill, can take lift to top but preferred the picturesque walk

We visited this beautiful site in December, so gardens weren't at bloom , but very impressive, non the less!
The entire site is huge & takes hours to see! The buildings & grounds are very well-maintained, to say the least. The order of how we saw this lovely attraction was very well-ordered , despite the large numbers to see this.
DO NOT use Viator Tours though. You will be ripped off by the cost . You can contact your hotel's concierge when you get to Granada- You can find outlets that sell tix right in town. If you still want to buy tix ahead- do so directly! There are city tour buses that cost only 2 E to take you up to the Alhambra. don't miss the area around -old city. Very quaint & pretty- but hilly.Work off the Tapas!
