Nasrid Palace

An ornate palace complete with lavish rooms, sprawling gardens, and vast courtyards, the Nasrid Palace is one of the highlights of the city. The Nasrid Palace in Alhambra is divided into three parts – the El Mexuar or the courtroom where meetings took place between the king and his ministers, the Palace of Comares which was the residence of the king and the Palace of the Lions which is the main courtyard area.
Look out for: Golden Room Courtyard, Lion's Palace, Mirador de Daraxa

Alcazaba

This Moorish fortification is one of the oldest parts of the Alhambra and can be traced back to the 9th century. Initially used as King Mohammad I's residence, the Alcazaba in Granada was later transformed into a military center after the construction of the Nasrid Palaces. Complete with thick walls and towers, it was the main line of defense against attacks.
Look out for: Torre de la Vela

Generalife

The 13th century Generalife Gardens is undoubtedly the most beautiful part of the Alhambra. The lush gardens that spread over a generous area are decorated with water fountains, courtyards, and a wide variety of flora. A relaxing stroll down the cypress tree-lined avenues of the Generalife Gardens will make for a perfect end to your visit to the Alhambra.
