Do not even think you can visit Alhambra without having purchased your tickets in advance. There are a limited amount of tickets that are sold per day (I think it is between 3k-5k) with different entrance times (to avoid crowding inside) with the last times...More

What is there to say about this place that hasn't already been said? The gardens, the structures, the DETAIL--it is truly a feast for the eyes. You absolutely must purchase tickets in advance for the Nasrid Palace, but it is worth it. I recommend the...More

Spectacular moorish castle set among beautiful manicured gardens. Plan to spend several hours so you can see all of the original palace, the summer palace, and the fort.

We toured the Alhambra with a guided day trip tour from Seville; first impression: while there were unsurprisingly tons of visitors, the site is well managed and a sense of order prevails. We were lucky to visit with near perfect weather in the mid 70s...More

The Alhambra is amazing and a must see But it is sad that the official audio guide totally ignores the role of the Jews in the creation of this building Amazing that no mention is made that it was here that the edict of expulsion...More

We booked out tickets in advance and did both the day and night tours. Words really cannot describe the mystique of this place. As you walk through the corridors and courtyards, it's easy to imagine what it might have been like when people actually lived...More

This is truly an amazing place and I can certainly understand why it is one of the top tourist attractions in all of Spain. This was a city within a city back in its day. It was originally founded and built by the Muslims. The...More

If you enter via the Puerta Justica, many of Alhambra's beautiful buildings and gardens can be enjoyed for free. It is a very peaceful place (albeit filled with tourists) for a couple of hours of exploration. We did not feel the need to buy tickets...More

We were very, very disappointed to miss The Alhambra. Tickets were sold out for more than two months ahead when we were trying to visit. We checked Viator and even some travel agents in Granada and could not get tickets. Next time...

Hi So I'm wondering if I can just buy tickets on Ticketmaster and then get an audio guide or those electronic guides? anyone know how much they are? I'll have to pay extra for them? Because Ticketmaster doesn't have a tour guide included in their price and we are thinking of getting some sort of a guide. Plus can someone please clarify if we can pickup our Ticketmaster tickets @ the ticket counter? I'm confused as some people said they had to pickup their Ticketmaster tickets from somewhere else in Granada? Thanks in advance!!

You can book a tour on line via an agent, such as Viator, who will give you a confirmation ref. number and tell you where to meet and at what time. DO NOT be late, as the tours all have allotted times. Your tour guide... More

My mom had to use a wheelchair in Spain due to limited mobility and so she was not able to visit this site. The gardens are fairly flat and beautiful to see but there are a lot a stairs in other areas.
