The Timeless Beauty of Alcazaba

Be transported through time as you explore the Alcazaba, the fortress that is one of the oldest parts of the Alhambra. The rustic beauty of the Candle Tower and the charming garden of Adarves will amaze you. Bask in the splendor of the summer palace of the Nasrids, the Generalife Palace. Stroll through the lush greenery of the Generalife gardens, past fountains and turquoise waters and take in the incredible scenic views of your surroundings.

With your ticket, you will also gain access to the Palace of Carlos V. Discover the unique story of this residence that was never used and learn about Nasrid art at the Museum of the Alhambra. Pick the option for a guided tour, and learn more about the monuments from your expert English, French, or Spanish guide to enhance your experience. With a ticket upgrade, you can access the opulent Qubba del Cuarto Real de Santo Domingo and the ancient Arab bath Bañuelo, with a visit to the elegant Palacio de Dar al-Horra, Corral del carbón, and the Moorish houses.

I was so glad that I had pre-booked entry into the Alhambra as it was fully booked that day and all that week even though one guide said that end of September was the quiet season! No problems with entering or navigating round the huge site. Allow at least 3-5 hours to see it all.

Great welcome even if we were tricked by the mini-bus tour of the city. The driver guaranteed that we could get off wherever we wanted and take a bus back to the parking lot. Which we did, and when we wanted to get back on the bus after the cathedral tour, we were refused access or had to pay for a full tour again. All in all, a real hassle. Fortunately, the visit to the Alhambra was magnificent.

Having found no tickets to visit the Alhambra on the day I was going to Granada, I searched the Internet for an alternative and stumbled upon the Granada Card. Thanks to this Pass I was able to visit the Alhambra despite the fact that there were no more tickets. Also included are 9 bus tickets and admissions to other monuments but I was only able to take advantage of the visit to the Cathedral due to lack of time.

First of all, the exceptional site, and then the ease of use of the granada card, apart from access to the buses, for which no map is readily available. As for the rest, it was a wonderful couple of days, and we really enjoyed the city.

Everything tiptop. Please describe better in the future that you have to buy a separate ticket for the buses to the Alhambra with the code.
