The Alhambra palace has seen many rulers during its lifetime and even though much of the palace still remains untouched, many of its historic objects, building elements and stories are now a part of the Museum of Alhambra located in the Palacio de Carlos V.
The museum prides itself for some of the best collection of Spanish-Moorish Art and Nasrid Art. The place explains much of the architecture of Alhambra and is a great addition to your itinerary after seeing the palace itself.

One of the best visits to an historical building. Its just impressive and well organized. The personell is not super friendly though. Service could be a bit better. There are many kiosks where you can by refreshments. The restaurants are outside of the area though. After walking through all of the buildings and gardens you cannot go by foot down to the cit. A nice walk and you will cross some nice restaurants.
This isn't the easiest place to get to so taking a tour bus is a good idea unless you have a car. You can pay at the gate. Dining options were few and far between when I was there but this was March, maybe it's better in high season. As for the place itself, well it really is very beautiful. If you love architecture, horticulture or history you'll love it.
Good place to visit if you are around. DEFINITELY GET A TOUR GUIDE! Otherwise, there is a chance you will not get in as there is only allowed to be a certain number of people inside at a given time, where priority is given to tours. Very nice historically and the local tour guides are extremely good.
Alhambra is a fantastic historical complex which consists of few different parts. To see them all you will probably need a couple of days. There is a lot to see inside and outside. Alhambra is a breath taking example of Islamic culture and architecture; famous touristic destination of Spain, great historic and cultural heritage. The best time to visit Alhambra is spring and autumn. In summer temperature in Andalucía rises too high and can spoil the enjoyment. BUYING THE TICKETS ON THE INTERNET IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST!!! - if you don´t want to face an infinite line of other visitors and miss a chance to see the complex of Alhambra. Study well the information on the official site, choose which parts represent the biggest interest for you, buy and print the tickets. Be sure to come to the entrance IN ADVANCE; don´t be late! To avoid overcrowding the number of visitors entering every hour is carefully monitored and limited. If you come later than an exact hour indicated on your ticket, they might deny the entrance. Guided tour is strongly recommended. Now they are available in major European languages and each visitor is provided a “blue-tooth” audio device which helps to hear the guide even at certain distance.
Granada is the capital city of the province of Granada, in Andalusia, Spain. Alhambra is Granada's and Europe's love letter to Moorish culture, a place where fountains trickle, leaves rustle and ancient spirits seem to mysteriously linger. Part palace, part fort, part World Heritage site, part lesson in medieval architecture, the Alhambra has long enchanted a never-ending line of expectant visitors. As a historic monument, it's unlikely it will ever be surpassed - at least not in the lifetime of anyone reading this.
