We like to spend most of our time outside but if it is rainy or getting too hot this is a good place to spend some of your time.

The span of history is astonishing. It is well worth the effort to get there, to experience the architecture, attention to details and incredible views.

This small museum, located in the Palace of Charles V on the grounds of Alhambra, contains interesting exhibits that were found on the ground and complement the various palaces. Entry is free.

We really enjoyed this museum. Note that you can enter it free; we went once on the day we had Alhambra tickets and again another day. It isn't that big or worth a log stay, but very informative.

Best museum in the area, explains the history well (especially the religious wars) and the beginning of the Spanish expansion/colonization.

I would like to book general tickets to see most parts of the Alhambra as we are a family group of mixed ages 10-70 but notice that the Ticketmaster ticket options are described in Spanish. We will aim to be there early in the morning. Can anyone tell me which one I should get? Many thanks.

Get the general admission ticket for 14 euros, this covers the gardens and the palace. Make sure you are early as I missed out on a ticket. I got there just before 10 and there were only a few tickets left which sold out... More

Best to book before you go; guest are limited to a specific number each day and the crowds can be numerous. We booked a guided tour and in my opinion was the best way to go. very personal, informative and worth every penny.
