The Basics

The Alhambra is broken up into sections: the Generalife Gardens (a collection of courtyards, pools, and fountains); the Alcazaba (the remainders of a Moorish fortress); and the Nasrid Palace (the main palace complex). If visiting on your own, choose from four official ticket types that include access to various areas at different times. Or, opt for a guided tour or private tour to remove some guesswork and gain insights from a local tour guide. No matter how you visit, book early, as the number of daily visitors is limited and tours and tickets sell out fast.

Don't visit Granada without going there

Alhambra Complete: Ticket Skip-the-Line Nasrid Palace and Generalife with Guide
Very Clean place, looking really genuine. Not to many people (space enough for everyone) and staff very professional, respectful and educated. Explanations are clear, massage was excellent. The Hanmam wasn't warm enough, I believe, due to repeated entries and exits of people.

Granada Day Trip with Alhambra Palace Skip the Line Entrance from Seville
A truly amazing place. Too many items to mention but we , a party of four, were enchanted from beginning to end. From the moment we stepped onto the coach to the moment we stepped off we were met with great warmth, and friendliness. A wonderful experience all around - a ten out of ten experience.

Skip-the-Line Alhambra, Generalife & Nasrid Palace Guided Tour - Small Group
Our guide was fantastic. Knowledgeable and warm and always available to answer our questions. For instance, I am of Sephardic Jewish descent and he was well versed in that history, although it was not his own.

Skip The Line Alhambra and Generalife Guided Tour
We spent a very interesting time with our guide, Anita. We had no idea, though, just how big the Alhambra is, nor that we were meeting and walking from a different meeting point. Be sure to wear good shoes! Not to miss.

How to Get to the Alhambra

Some visitors walk up to the Alhambra on one of the scenic routes from the city center. These paths are on a bit of an incline, but many believe the views are worth the slight workout. Those who would rather rest their legs can take a bus or taxi, or drive up independently (note that parking spaces are limited). Most guided Alhambra tours include round-trip transport from downtown Granada or from nearby cities such as Seville and Malaga.

When to Get There

The Alhambra is open year round, with varied hours based on the season and day of the week. Much of your visit will be outside, so dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes.

How to Choose Between a Night Visit and Day Visit to the Alhambra

The Alhambra is beautiful at all hours, so this is a matter of preference. Day tours are most common, but on a night tour, you get the unique experience of seeing the incredible site lit up against the dark sky. Visitors should note, however, that night tickets are separated between Nasrid Palace only or gardens only and cannot be combined. If you want to see both, choose a morning tour or afternoon tour.
