Alcazaba - Review

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

Google+
  • Obviously really cool place to take lots of photos and pano shots. Great views of the city from there as well. Really neat to see all of the old barracks/rooms where people lived. Also the kitty cats. I love all the kitties lounging about not caring about anything in the world.

  • Although a large part of the Alhambra, it is a unique structure and one of the oldest sections of the entire palace. It will make you see a rare view into the history you are standing in / walking through. The section shows the craftsmanship of the Nasrid and the attention to detail taken into account of every aspect of their architecture.

  • Great views of Granada but you have to book tickets months in advance to get in

  • This place is truly amazing. It was perfect for our engagement! The view is out of this world.

  • Awesome Fort with clear view of any invaders.
