    Wonderful
    The Nasrid Palaces were highlight of our visit to Alhambra. You get timed ticket and if late won’t be admitted, also remember ID which is required. The Palaces are beautiful with courtyards, numerous water features, especially liked the Courtyard of Lions and intricate carvings, very elegant, don’t forget to look up the ceilings are just as stunning. We went on guided tour which was excellent and our guide made sure we saw everything. Would recommend visiting, it is truly beautiful.

    Stunning
    Truly amazing inside and out, this is a must do in Granada. It does get busy, even though entry is only by timed ticket, remember to take your id, otherwise you will not get in! We did the tour on our own which was OK, however it left us with a lot of unanswered questions, so next time will get a private guide for the inside. You will spend all your time in awe of what you are looking at, when exiting take a look at the beautiful gardens and then head up to Generallife.

    The most crowded place in Alhambra
    These palaces are stunning mansions built for Spanish-Muslim rulers. The style is very Arabic. When booking your Alhambra tickets, you have to choose a date and time when to visit these palaces. Despite that, it was too many people. Taking photos was not easy.

    Unique and beautiful
    This is a lovely experience and it deserves all the praise it receives. Make sure you book your timed entry well in advance. Also recommend getting first entry of the day when it is at its most peaceful and you can really soak in the atmosphere. Be sure to arrive well ahead of your entry time at the correct gate and bring your passport as they check upon entry. Once you're inside you can spend as much time as you like before seeing the rest of the grounds.

    Stunning
    Absolutely beautiful. Well organised, you have timed tickets for the Nasrid palaces and have to arrive within 15mins of your time, easy peas. One nitwit turned up almost 2 hours late and was furious when they refused him entry. He did say he was putting it on trip advisor!! I say get a watch and you would not have m7ssed a wonderful experience.

    Night time visit to picturesque palace
    The Nasrid Palaces are inside the Alhambra. The second part of the Alhambra tour started at 10PM for our group, with the Nasrid Palaces night visit ticket. The Nasrid Palaces is made up of several important palaces; the Mexuar, the Comares Palace, the Palace of the Lions, and the Partal Palace. We lined up outside, but once inside, it was the start of a very special experience being there at night. I was amazed at all the different palaces that we saw, and we were in there for the full 90 minutes until they closed the doors. It was lightly raining towards the end of the tour, so it forced tourists inside at times, and I got some fantastic photos of the palace patios with no one in them. I was the very last traveler to leave the palace before the staff closed the large wooden doors to end their work shift at 11:30PM.

    Gorgeous display of old Islamic architecture. Full of gardens and pools!
    The palace is a beautiful display of 13th century Islamic architecture and design. There are numerous arches, gardens, and pools along with amazing views. The Nasirid palaces are not to be missed and are a must on your tour of the Alhambra. I highly recommend visiting!

The Nasrid Palaces have so much history and beauty to offer. We did a private tour and were glad we did because there is so much history to take in and so many different, beautiful and amazing features of the palaces to absorb

The Nasrid Palace is the part of the Alhambra that you don't want to miss. Book your tickets online as soon as they are available as they sell out. The time on your ticket is the entrance time to the Nasrid Palace so you must be in the queue about 15 minutes before then - it is quite a walk from the Alhambra entrance so leave plenty of time to get there as if you miss it they won't let you in late. Should you be visiting at short notice and find that there are no tickets available, which happened to us on our first visit, then look at buying a Granada Card as they have slots available.
The buildings are just unbelievable - the carvings on the walls and ceilings, the patios and ponds - it is all absolutely breath-taking and so beautiful. You can visit during the day and also after dark - we did both and it's definitely worth doing if you can afford to and are able to get tickets as you see it differently.

Beatiful roof decorations!!!
Book your ticket to Nasrid in advance, and arrive welll in time before your time slot (a few hours), so you can see other places in the vast Alhambra area before Nasrid's palace.
Anyway , you need enough time to walk from parking and find the place, so be at the location min. 1 hour before.

The highlight of the Alhambra. We had some luck as we could not pick a time slot for our ticket anymore. I guess we got the last tickets online and had the chance to enter the palace as last group. That allowed us to get some impression of the palace with not so many people around us. Maybe the light was not optimal but having the palace with just a handful of other people is amazing. Apart from that, we got very impressed by the handcraft of that time. The audioguide helped a lot to learn more about the purpose of the palace and its different building/ facilities.
