The Alcazaba is the oldest part of Alhambra and was used for military purposes. The ‘Vela’ watchtower overlooks the whole neighbourhood along with the Quebrada, Homenaje, Cubo and Adarguero towersand eventhough access to the dungeons is restricted, you can still walk around the historic place.

Just like Alhambra, the Alcabaza remained in ruins till the 19th century and in 20th century its restoration has given life to the history of Granada that would otherwise remain lost. Stop by at the place for the view, the architecture and the ambience.

Alcazaba, Granada Reviews - Write a Review

  • Besides the great views, the center courtyard is quite interesting as the place where the armies were houses. Don't miss the gorgeous gardens on the exit route. Perfect spot to sit in the shade, among flowers and fountains, to take a rest, photo, or snack break.

  • Even though there are more interesting buildings in the whole complex of the Alhambra, this one has espectacular views of Granada. Great location to take your pano pictures!!!

  • A great place to take beautiful photos of Granada. Especially from the tower you have a great view all around.

  • Another UNESCO site ticked off the list and didn't let us down. We were a bit disorganised with the tickets but got a guide from the Grandad online with was good and well organised.

  • Take your time, prepare to have a long walk, get an audioguide.
