What can you say about this monument that has not already been said better by wiser men than me. A fantastic testimony to the skills of the local artisans and the vision of the Moorish elite ruling this region. Magnificent in its scope, beautiful in its detail and stunning in its scale. Book tickets in advance, take the day and explore the palace, the castle, the gardens and enjoy the views.
Probably the most spectacular spot in Spain a must visit but allow at least 4 hours, book your tickets at least a couple of months before or risk it after midnight on the day (keep trying). So much history so beautiful go there. Love from Australia.
An amazing place full of historical and architectural value. I would recommend everyone to get the guided tour; it makes it that much more exciting and interesting. A total "MUST VISIT" in Spain. There is also a math-oriented tour, that goes over all the complex math used to build everything from the biggest structures to the smallest details.
Beautiful scenery, gorgeous architecture, and some nice walks. We visited the Alhambra with our 2 little children and it was a nice visit. It was easy to park the car and a short walk to the entrance. I recommend getting a cup of coffee inside the park and not before the entrance as you can't take it with you through the entrance. The audio guide was good but focused a little bit to much on the aesthetics and less on the history of the palace(s) and the sultans.
Breath taking experience. A calm and beautyfull place that leads you into a magic dream of thousand and one nights. This harmony and perfection is simply impressive. A piece of heaven on earth, you don`t want to go away there. It is one of the things you should have seen once in your life. Best to enjoy with warm but not too hot weather, sunsets and sundowns are epic at this place. Let the ambience take your heart.
