Beautifully designed garden near the top of the Alhambra hill. It is a must see and it is included in the one ticket anyway

The Generalife is the summer palace in Granada. The palace is lovely, not as lovely on the inside as the Alhambra is. The gardens are simply spectacular and are well worth walking through. I would strongly recommend visiting.

As part of The Alhambra complex, the gardens are beautiful. So much history in the Moorish Gardens. We found them very well maintained. Such variety of plants, fountains and buildings. Take your time and enjoy.

Beautiful landscaped garden with a diversity of plants, shrubs and trees. A water irrigation planted from history, which provides the multitude of small fountains with water.

The garden and water features were peaceful and allowed you to sense the tranquillity. The views across to the main Alhambra site were excellent.

Not like the Alhambra in terms of beauty and detail, but also worth visiting. I have seen beautiful gardens in other locations, and is comporable. The edge here is the history.
