A can’t miss when visiting Granada, pre- purchase your ticket for 9 am, start early , be prepared to walk for hours, take your time, and bring your camera! It’s an experience that you will never forget.

We took a audio tour of the Alhambra and it was very informative and the best way to efficiently cover most of the places inside Alhambra.

Hard to find words to express the amazement and awe of Alhambra. My heart and spirit are still there, dreaming. Nec plus ultra.
