About Alhambra

The Alhambra, a jewel of Islamic architecture, is Granada's most iconic landmark. This sprawling complex blends fortifications, palaces, and gardens, showcasing the sophistication of the Nasrid dynasty. From the opulent Hall of the Ambassadors to the tranquil Generalife gardens, the Alhambra offers a glimpse into a bygone era of artistic and architectural innovation.

Why visit Alhambra?

Did you know?
  • The name 'Alhambra' originates from the Arabic term 'Al-Hamra', which means 'the red one', a reference to the reddish walls and towers of the complex.
  • Washington Irwing, the American author wrote 'Tales of the Alhambra' while actually living in the palace, which has since become a popular literary classic.
  • Alhambra's Nasrid Palaces feature intricate ‘honeycomb’ ceilings that were designed to symbolize paradise.
  • Alhambra's Generalife gardens are known for their ‘water staircases’ a fountain system that uses gravity to distribute water to the different levels.

Actually I did not like the ticketing experience that much. The google map location was incorrect, the Alhambra map was covered by a box. I had a real hard time finding the meeting place. But our guide Cynthia was very knowledgeable, I learned a lot about the history of the place from her.

Excellent guide who was very friendly and knowledgeable. My only regret is that I didn't visit the Nasrid palaces because it wasn't clear when I booked. Nice experience all the same

Our guide Gustavo was super nice and knowledgeable. I liked his English - it was very understandable and fluent. Gustavo showed everything in a good pace, his comments were interesting, he is very passionate about Alhambra and makes this tour fascinating. I also liked that the group was not too big, it was comfortable to follow up.

The greatest part about the guided tour of the Al Hambra was truely our guide herself, 'Mar'. Her knowledge of the history surrounding the Al Hambra and more generally Spain, was incredible and certainly made the tour worth every cent. I cannot advise more strongly that you organise a guided tour of the Al Hambra even if just to skip all the lines and take a bit more from your trip then you otherwise would!

Booked entrance to the Alahmbra in Granada. Explanation for how to do detailed and we were in in no time. Very convenient Headout app. Highly recommend! The 'entrance to the Naziaries palaces has a specific time and you have to arrive a bit earlier while for everything else you can walk around freely. The complete tour according to the guide takes more or less 3 hours.
