This was my second visit. I love Granada and you can’t not see The Alhambra while there. It’s breathtaking.

The complex includes palaces, the old Moorish fortress (Alcazaba) and the Generalife gardens and palace. The only visit you must schedule is at the Nasrid palaces where they only allow a few tens of people each half an hour. This is a good idea because...More

I loved this place! The whole area is huge and would take hours and hours to visit so we focused on the main attractions. The Palace is wonderful and the walk in the area around it was nice. Would definitely go again!

No point coming to Granada and not seeing this. Book your ticket in advance online (you can do it on a smartphone) to make things easier. But an absolutely incredible collection of buildings in superb condition.

The Alhambra in Granada, Spain is a tourist hotspot with a rich history... It is equally interesting and intriguing. A must see for those planning a trip to Granada. The city has plenty of authentic Tapas bars too.

I would recommend booking your tickets online and in advance because they often sell out. I spent 3.5 hours seeing all of the different parts of the Alhambra, and I would highly recommend getting the audioguide (6€). It has fantastic panoramic views of Granada and...More

We really enjoyed our time in Granada and visiting that Alhambra. We were very concerned that we didn’t have tickets before we got to Spain because the official website showed they were not available. We were checking almost every day for about a month. Two...More
