This is one of the finest examples of Moorish architecture anywhere in the world. Go early in the day and plan for a three hour visit. Lots to see.

It is a memorable tour of this monumental palace. Our tour guide was well-informed and helpful. The inner gardens were very peaceful. The water fountains and ponds were superb. The only problem was the crowd. But they managed to keep everyone orderly. I recommend all to see this monument.

The history, the beauty, the gardens and oh the vistas of the Alhambra palace is an experience that you must not miss when visiting Granada. Enjoyed every moment that I was there peeking through thousands of years of history.

Historic place, it's smaller than i expected. Some beautifull moorish architecture, there is only one entrance it's on the eastern side, close to the way to generallife. I was there in late November, it was not that busy, i heard in the summer there are long queues. Don't forget to see the Generallife and gardens!

If you visit Granada, don't miss the tour of the Alhambra! We spent 5 hours here and could have spent many more. We used the self-guided audio tour, which was very helpful in understanding the history of the place.
