There is so much that you have to see, that at least a week will be enough for you to enjoy properly the venues that you have inside of the palace, comfortable shoes are well recommended

THE reason to travel to Granada. Before you tour the Alhambra try to see it at night by hiking up the hill opposite and see the lights illuminate it. When you book your hotel have them buy your tickets ahead of time.
