Alhambra, Granada Reviews - Write a Review
The Alhambra is simply spectacular. The views across Granada and the mountains are amazing. The complex itself is incredible. There is a lot to see and do. Each attraction has a ton of history and well worthwhile exploring the entire complex. It was definitely worthwhile getting an audio guide as there is a lot of information in understanding the significance of the various areas of the complex. The palace and apartments themselves are stunning, but unfortunately get really over crowded. Fortunately the complex itself is massive so there is plenty of room for everyone. My only complaint was the audio guides are a little pricey but worthwhile. There is also not a great food selection in the complex.
Such a beautiful piece of history. The atmosphere is sombre yet pleasant, a true blend of civilizations is capture in the walls, the art and architecture. The gardens are heavenly. One can easily spend more than a day just lost in awe of this place. a must visit, just bring a hat and plenty of water in summer as it can get very steamy and sweaty
Unique travel in time experience with beautiful artwork and most the time lots of tourists. With a little luck you find yourself alone in these incredible ambients. Although it might be only for a short time it's worth living. Friendly staff and tour guides. Be aware there are no restaurants close or inside. Only junk food boxes.
This place is just magical and brimming with history. To be honest, it's big enough to spend hours there and you'd likely still end up feeling like you've not seen it all, especially if you're a history buff. It's definitely worth booking a guided tour since you'll learn things you'd struggle to find out and you'll see areas that you might just miss. Not only that but some tours end up being good value for money and can be booked at short notice, whereas you might not get into Alhambra on spec. Word of advice though: don't go middle of the day during the summer - it gets very hot up there.
I toured many palaces in Europe, this is the most beautiful of them all. I couldn't recommend it enough. Tip: tickets go out fast. If you forgot to get tickets a few weeks in advance you could do one of 3 things: 1) At 12:00am the night before your visit, go to their website and try to get a ticket then. They release new tickets every day for the same day but they go out super fast. You must get your tickets within minutes of 12:00am. 2) line up at 6:00am at the ticket office. They also have a limited number of tickets released on the same day. The office opens at 8:00am but you have to be there very early to get a chance. 3) wait outside the palace for someone going out and ask them for their ticket if they were done for the day. You won't be able to visit Nasrid palace this way because the visit is timed, but you'll get to see the rest like general life gardens and palace. Good luck!
