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.

Excellent Alhambra trip
A harrowing initial experience as we did not all carry passports and the bookings were not in our exact names. Luckily managed to get in. Excellent guide in Jamie. Well worth the money.

Granada: Alhambra, Abadia, Albaicin 3 hour historical tour
We had 1 day to see as much as we could of Granada. This was the perfect way. We covered what would have taken us 2 days in 3 hours. Totally recommend this company. We had an outstanding, fantastic experience with our guide Adolfo. What was also extremely important was his focus on safety. The segways were in perfect condition and he made our day unforgettable! Kudos to Adolfo, he absolutely made our day!!! We can’t wait to. One back to beautiful Granada .

Skip The Line Alhambra and Generalife Guided Tour
Not only was the guide Pedro ponctual and professional, he was always keen to help the tourists, keep the place clean and solve problems around him. His knowledge of the attractions is rather natural and he even brought pictures to better explain the historical and social context of Alhambra. An excellent morning.

Alhambra and Generalife Small Group Guided Tour with Skip the Line Tickets
Meeting instructions clear and our guide was on time. Really great tour, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and the equipment used to hear the guide was good and all health and safety aspects thought of for Covid. The tour took around 4 hours so make sure you have good walking shoes. In some parts there is no shade so remember to take sun protection and keep hydrated. Loved the Alhambra and would do this tour again.

Alhambra and Generalife Small Group Guided Tour with Skip the Line Tickets
Overall organization of the tour was great, with clear instructions and no waiting whatsoever (although of course these are still covid times). We were lucky to have Antonio as a guide. He was very friendly, attentive, knowledgable, and passionate about history. Told us many interesting details and stories in impeccable fluent English. It was a pleasurable and memorable tour of Alhambra. Thank you.

  • The complex has four restrooms: in the Entrance Pavilion (near the ticket office), the Pavilion of Services, the Low Gardens, and the Sultana's Court.

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. If you're visiting during the summer months, try to go at the earliest or latest available time slots to avoid the biggest crowds.

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.
