We visited the Generalife as part of our private guided tour of the Alhambra and it is a garden spot with a great garden with pools and photo magic.

We visited this as part of a guided tour of the Alhambra. It's stunning and would have been an amazing place in its day. Even with lots of tour groups walking through it was still very ijmpressive.

The summer residence for Alhambra is in similar style but smaller and more intimate. The gardens are quite beautiful with stunning views over its better-known neighbour and the city of Granada.

A place to sit & rest & people watch after visiting Alhambra. Lovely gardens, including shady spots to stay away from the sun

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
