What a great place to visit. Can't believe you get all day to look around for €12 there some much to see and take in. We did go in November but it was quite so loads of time to stop and take in the sights.

Perched high above the ancient city of Granada, it is easy to understand why The Alhambra is the number one tourist destination in Spain. The abundant, expansive gardens add to the...More

By far one of the best places I have visited in tourist mode. I would add on the Generalife area as well as it has as much to offer. There are many places to relax, take it slow....so much beauty.

If you have some time before or after your visit to the Alhambra, the Alhambra museum is a nice place for a short visit. Information about artifacts on the audio guide. Not much information given without it.

This an interesting small-medium sized museum which holds a collection of many items from the Alhambra site and beyond. Note that this isn't the Alhambra itself but a museum on the site. Well worth a look, but not an integral part of the experience.

We went back to the museum after our guided tour was finished and found it to be very interesting. This is where you can see the original carvings and furnishings since most of what you see in the palaces is a reproduction or restoration. It...More

We did tour it as part of our private guided tour of the Alhambra. Our guide explained his favorite items. Not the Louvre or Met. Just a few items. Air Conditioned and that helps.

Get the general admission ticket for 14 euros, this covers the gardens and the palace. Make sure you are early as I missed out on a ticket. I got there just before 10 and there were only a few tickets left which sold out... More
