We visited the Alhambra two days ago. As every review mentions, buy tickets well in advance. We didn’t but ended up getting regular tickets ( alterado sold out two months ahead). So we purchased the Grenada card for 40 euro each and it includes entrance...More

This is one of the great sites in the world. Absolutely vital to book in advance - get a normal priced ticket to include the main palace and wander at your own pace. Marvel at the vastness, be thrilled with the intricate carvings, wonder at...More

We visited the Alhambra two years ago without realising the need to book in advance. We wondered around the open buildings and vowed to go back. Now that we have we weren't disappointed. The building is beautiful and well worth a visit. A tour is...More

How many people miss Los palacios de nazaries because of the sheer incompetence of the Alhambra organization? How many people were not sufficiently informed that the hour on the ticket is for the nazaries palace? This organisation is an insult to the sultans that built...More

I tried to book one week earlier tickets to visit Alhambra for 10 people including 6 adults, 3 kids and one infant. It was a last moment arrangement for a family group and as expected, no available tickets that are usually sold at 15 euros....More

We spent all day here. Word to the wise: booking tickets one month in advance is cutting it fine!! Book at least two months in advance to be safe. The audioguide was really good value - it meant we really understood what we were seeing.

Yup, definitely buy your ticket online and then go the Justice Gate for a prompt entrance. We were told to have our passports but were not asked for them, but someone else in the line was. This is an expansive array of history, so be...More
