The Alhambra is a must-see site. It is an exceptional example of the Moorish architecture and art of that period of Spanish history. Unfortunately we were there on a rainy day (remnants of Hurricane Leslie), which resulted in the closure of the adjacent Generalife Gardens....More

Absolutely recommend Alhambra. We went on a guided tour that lasted 3 hours and we were absolutely exhausted by the end of it but I really recommend it. I believe without a guide we would be completely lost, as it’s so big, and we would...More

The Alhambra is a must see if you are in southern Spain. Plan on spending a full day just at Alhambra in order to see the Alcazar, the Palace, GeneralLife and grounds. Buy your tickets ahead of time on-line, because they do sell out. We...More

Absolutely beautiful place. Quite stunning. If there one thing you should see in Spain, this is it. We had a guide from Granavision who was excellent (Victor).

A visit to the Alhambra is one of the most difficult tickets to obtain for any Spanish site, but well worth postponing your trip until you can obtain one. The history and architecture of the site are amazing when you consider that is was built...More
