If there is one place to visit in Andalucia (Al-Andalus) that represents the impact of the Islamic dynasties on Spanish culture, this would be it. This is not just a single palace or Alcazar, but a collection of buildings that comprised the walled city of...More

My wife and I took a guided tour, the experience was fantastic. We walked all the spaces open to the public receiving valuable and interesting information from our guide. The place is full of history and one of the most amazing historic sites in Europe.

If you want to do the Alhambra, know that it's a long distance from other sites and there is not much else in Grandada to visit. You can spend a half day or maybe a whole day here. But you must get tickets in advance...More

Get the bus or taxi. Both are cheap. Save your legs for the walking in the palace. We spent around 7-8 hours there.
