“Stunning gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

We visited the Generalife after our visit to the Alhambra, and it was very nice. Well maintained gardens with flowers blooming in every month of the year. Great building with nice arabic influences.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

We thought that these gardens were lovely in the winter on our first visit but in the summer with plants flowering it was beautiful. Stunning fountains and water features and great views of Granada and the Alhambra.

“Majestic place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

The gardens and the water features are beautiful. It is a wonderful stroll through the gardens, with amazing views of Granada from the various vantage points. If you are getting a combined ticket and are visiting Alhambra together with Generalife, go to Generalife last. The later in the day you go, the cooler it is and the walk is much nicer. Especially if you visit in the heat of the summer. We purchased combined tickets in advance on the Alhambra website and did not have to wait in the ticket line.
There are water stations all throughout the property, so if you bring one small bottle of water with you, you are able to refill it.

“Not a walk in a 'park'.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

If you have made the effort to go the the Alhambra, you would be a fool to miss these stunning gardens. These gardens are all part of the experience and should be savoured. Beautifully maintained. If you are keen on photography you will get some great shots of the Alhambra and Granada from here. This is a great spot to relax after spending a few hours wandering around the main sites of the Alhambra.
