This was the summer palace, but the buildings now are pretty much empty and bare. But the gardens are amazing, huge and full of colour! Entry is combined with the Alhambra and I'd recommend you walk up here first, then over to the Alhambra.

The fountain park is nice but besides that there is little to see. Some nice views towards Nasrid Palace can be seen. 1h visit if you move a bit quick. Same rules here as on other sites within the Alhambra; Photo/video without flash is ok. Backpacks must be worn in hand or in front. Selfie sticks are forbidden. You’ll need... More

Garden is just amazing here. It brings you back to the history. Better to visit it during the spring, because it has just amazing flowers. You wish therewould be pillows and books.

The Generalife is part of your Alhambra ticket & is a lovely place to wander around & take photos. Beautiful water features. We were lucky to go in Spring when all the flowers were blooming.

The gardens are wonderful. The colors of the flowers were beautiful. The use of the water throughout gives a feeling of peace. Everywhere you looked the grounds were perfect.

Do this within the whole package of walking the Alhambra. Beautiful walking experience and a must if visiting Granada.

Part of the Alhambra complex, you can get entry without going into the main part of the Alhambra. Recommend visiting just for a stroll round the gardens, beautifully maintained, lots of variety, lots of fountains, great views of Granada. Recommend parking yourself on a bench, enjoying the sun and the sound of the fountains.
