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.

I went to Alhambra in January 2017, with my parents and my 7 yo Son, and it's a visit I strongly recommend! I also recommended the guided tour, as there are so many details, stories and historical facts that alone you would miss something for sure. Our guide Mica, knew a lot, was very uplifting and made the visit even more enjoyable! Magical place, a marvel for architects! Tip: buy your tkts in advance and wear comfortable shoes!
The staff on site speaks zero English and can't explain anything. Security guard was aggressive. Spaniards need to bump up their English skills to be effective. The castle complex was beautiful.
There are no words to describe the beauty of the Alhambra : impossible to miss if you visit Granada! We spent more than 4 hours walking around and enjoying the beauty of the palace and gardens. Some recommendations for tickets : - try to book online at least 2 weeks in advance - if you did not get ticket online try and buy some combined tickets in the city centre - if you did not manage : queue starts from 5 and cashier desk open at 8... so bring warm clothes, something to sit on and be very patient.
“Joyous Tesselations” It is hard to describe the Alhambra in a short review, it is hard to summon up the experience. You don't have to be a lover of history, thought it might help. You don't have to be a student of art, though it would blow your mind. You don't have to love gardens, though gardeners will be enchanted. You don't have to be an architect, but everyone who is needs to visit. You don't have to love beauty, but if you do this will astonish you. The Alhambra is a palace and has been so for several hundred years. It is probably the greatest, non-religious, Western treasure of the Muslim world. It is a testament to the wealth (scientific, cultural and engineering), trade and cultural excellence of the period. You will not see anything else like it anywhere in Europe, maybe not in the world. A Tessellation is a repeating pattern, geometric and mathematical and the Alhambra is filled with them. They are everywhere. It is necessary to book to go around the Alhambra and my suggestion is that you leave yourself plenty of time when you do so. This place cannot be covered in an hour. I was there for a whole afternoon and I didn't see everything. The main palace has specific time slots - make sure you don't miss your slot as they do not allow you in. Worth travelling to Granada just for this.
We booked a guided tour in advance because of the uncertainty of being able to purchase tickets on the day. As it happens January to April is off season so we would have been able to buy entrance tickets on the day. Alhambra is Spains most visited tourist attraction so I can imagine how crowded this place could be, so do your homework!! There is so much to see here so you need the whole day. The guided tour gave our visit an extra dimension, but that also depends on the guide as the tour cost €49
