About Palacios Nazaries, Granada

The Palacios Nazaries is the crown jewel of Alhambra and offers a peek into the royal residential palace.

Other highlight include:

  • Comares Tower
  • The breathtaking wooden celling of the Hall of Blessing
  • Comares Hall
  • Patio de los Leones’s (Lion Courtyard) marble fountain

  • The most desirable place in Alhambra, order your tickets online well in advance. Then show up at your assigned 1/2 hours start time, as they will not let you in early or late. Once in, wander at your leisure. We rented the audio guides, so we listened, admired, and took plenty of photos. Quite crowded, but be patient, once the group tours move quickly past, you often find fewer people who are less pushy and you can get nice photos. The place is a top 25 in the world in my book, and I have traveled 40 years, 40+ counties, and lived in several. This is worth taking time to enjoy and capture on camera. Enjoy and marvel at the workmanship, especially the varied tile works and unique plaster etchings.

  • This is some of the best architecture I've ever seen. The entrance Nazaries came with our alcazaba ticket and we had to be sure to be here at the time printed on our ticket. You will end up spending about 45 minutes walking around and admiring all the different rooms and taking pictures

  • Clear evidence of the superiority of Islamic art over christian barocco. This is a great example of symmetry. The dome is a refined philosophical course... telling to the person standing underneath that we have to pass through the limits of material life (the square is a finite polygon) to reach the bliss of heaven (the circle being an infinite polygon). The windows are perfectly positioned to make the view the real centre of the room. It is clear that my ancestors believed this was heaven on earth. Division and Christian extremism destroyed that haven and built the horror that is the Alphonso VI palacio. Those who visit this place must have a thought and pray for the millions of Jews and Muslims killed by the Catholic church in Spain. That crime against humanity started when the last Muslim prince surrendered here. One third of the Jewish and Muslim population were executed by the catholics.

  • Very important to note- there is an entrance time on your ticket which corresponds to when you need to enter this palace- the entrance time on your ticket is NOT for entering the Alhambra main entrance. It is a 10-15 minute walk from the main entrance, and there are often queues at both the main entrance of the Alhambra, and this palace door. We people refused entry because they got their ticket time wrong. It is a highlight of the trip, so don't miss it!

  • It’s beautiful but there is no signage so if you want to learn you should get a book or audio guide
