Generalife - Review

Though right next to the Alhambra, the Generalife is considered to be a different structure altogether, mostly because it had a different purpose. The Alhambra was a palace that had living quarters and places for the palace business. The Generalife was built in the early 14th century with one purpose, to get away from it all, especially during the hot summer months. Visiting the gardens of the Generalife (which means "gardens of the architect") one can marvel at the sophistication of Arab engineering, ingenuity and architecture. Using primitive hydraulics and a good understanding of physics the Arab rulers built this summer palace with multiple fountains, pools of water and beautiful gardens to really make the spot habitable during the heat. Just perfect to stroll around slowly, taking in the greenery of its many gardens and the cool air from the fountains.

Generalife Information

  • It is near impossible to obtain a ticket at the counter itself as the lines are very long and they sell out quickly. Buy one beforehand.
  • Wear comfortable shoes as there will be a lot of walking to do.
  • Tickets sell out well in advance during tourist season, so plan accordingly.
  • Take a long and leisurely stroll in the Gardens, it has some spectacular views of the city of Granada. It takes not more than 2 hours to view it all, but some prefer to make this a 3 to 4 hour stroll with breaks.

Generalife, Granada Reviews

Google+
  • It was very pretty however, the crowds were something else. And in June the heat was oppressive. Should I do this again I will come in early spring or late fall.

  • Beautiful area and maintained very well. It was a nice time walking around the gardens and seeing all the amazing architecture.

  • Very nice Arab palacio in Europa. Beautiful garden and view from here to see the city. If it is spring or fall and winter to visit here, we must wear more clothes. The temperature here is relatively low.

  • At the end of the Alhambra visit you will be tired but the Generalife is a best ending point so visit it in any case! The garden is free but there must be a ticket to visit the Generalife palace. The palace is not so big so you don't need so many time to look around but it is lovely. The garden is huge and in summer it's a good place to relax (in spring it was "only" nice). The main entrance is not too far from Generalife so we can easily leave the complex.

  • This is just a beautiful place...don't think about it...GO, visit it!
