Most interesting magnificent monument to visit in Granada with the Alhambra. But beware you will be queuing as 8000 people a day visit the site. Guides are excellent and it is worth every penny to book a private guide who picks you up at your...More

I really enjoyed the gardens. Such a rich variety of trees, history, herbs and flowers. The shade is welcome in the heat and of you love the plant kingdom this is a must!

Perhaps it was the beauty of the main portion of the Alhambra which took the shine off this but we left feeling slightly underwhelmed, after the walk to get here it seemed less grand than what we expected. But worth visiting anyhow, lots of lovely...More

Obviously one of the top sites anywhere. Tip one, if you can do visit here before the palaces because they will tie in better. That means a timed ticket from about 12.30 onwards for the palaces. Tip two, pause and reflect when the large parties...More

This part of the Alhambra grounds show the interplay between the outside natural gardens, flowers, waters and light and the open architecture of the moorish buildings. We visited in early May where roses and many shrubs and trees were blossoming. Interior gardens with passageways and...More

Gorgeous views of Granada from atop the Generalife, and stunning rose gardens! It's worth the walk from the Palace.

This is included with your ticket to the Alhambra and definitely worth visiting. The palace itself is quite small, but it has terraced, manicured gardens and waterways that are just beautiful.

The Alhambra can take its toll as there is so much to see and you feel that you can't manage Generalife. Do not miss the opportunity it really is work spending time here and it is a place to relax and listen to the water...More

The gardens are so beautiful and there is tremendous beauty in the entire experience. We visited the gardens first before the palaces. It was a bright and sunny day. The flowers and the trees were all so beautiful. Very well kept. Must visit.

Excellent extension to the Alhambra Palace. Wonderful gardens, with spectacular views of the Sierra Nevada mountains and the city of Granada.

Hello. My mother is 72 years old and while she can walk, her heart is not in a great shape and cannot do exercise that puts substantial demand on her. I've seen comments about needing to climb 40 stairs,that getting up to Generalife is the most demanding part, etc... Can someone briefly describe what it actually takes to go up there? Is it 40 stairs or is it more than that, ie. climbing hills etc. I have no idea. Thanks very much!

Hi , you need to take a taxi to the entrance gates, it is very hilly to get up there. Inside there is a lot of walking ,we took one of the guided tours and were walking for nearly 3 hours so be prepared .

Try to go early to the queue, you should get your tickets. Or if you are at a hotel try to get a tour, because the gardens are better to see on tour with good guide!! Nice trip
