The Alhmabra is Spain’s most visited building with 2.5 million visitors annually.

Tips visiting The Alhambra

The Alhambra consists of several parts and you can partially visit it without a ticket, but you need an access card for visiting the four most beautiful parts. I recommend you purchase the tickets for the Alhambra at least a month ahead. That’s because there is a limit on the amount of visitors per day.

Don’t you have tickets? Then it will take hours of queuing to get a ticket.

Ticket prices

• General admission: €14,-
• The gardens of the Alhambra: €7,-
• Alhambra ‘by night’: €8,- (evening visit to Generalife and Nasrid palace)
• Alhambra experience: €14,- (evening visit to Nasrid palace and next morning a visit to Alcazaba and Generalife)
But don’t be sad, if you don’t have a ticket then a stroll through the complex is definitely a good alternative!

Tips for visiting the Alhambra in the evening

Tickets for an evening visit are often available on the day itself and in the evening it’s a lot less busy as well as very beautiful.

Tips for visiting the Alhambra: which parts are a must visit?

1. The Generalife

The Generalife is a beautiful garden with an alien kind of beauty of flowers and plants. Beautiful gardens and beautifully restored buildings give you a feeling of paradise which makes you go very quiet. So beautiful! My favorite part of the Alhambra!

The Nasrid palace

The Nasrid palace is the most refined and artful part of the Alhambra with an absurdly cool lion fountain. Because there are only a limited number of visitors at a certain time you can take it easy. Beautiful decorations and architecture!

Palace of Charles V

The palace was built for Charles V and had to emanate a European style. This makes it totally different from the other buildings in the Alhambra area, because the palace consists of two floors and has a circular courtyard. In this building, the Museum of Fine Arts is located: Museo de Bellas Artes de Granada. The museum is free to visit and I found it a super beautiful building.
