Our tips for Alhambra Palace

  • Last-minute folks could lose out. Alhambra limits its visitor numbers to 6,600 a day. This may seem like a lot, but in summer the crowds add up. Book Alhambra Palace tickets well in advance to avoid missing out.
  • Arabian nights. Alhambra sunsets are spectacular and not to be missed. Night Alhambra Palace tours are offered for the Nazrid complexes only, so if you’d prefer to visit the site in full, be sure to stick around to witness this sight in all its glory.
  • Take your time. This grand palace has lots on offer, with formal gardens and exotic palatial interiors decorating the site. So make sure that you have the whole day to spare.

Good to know

Best time to visit
Jostling with heaving crowds on a warm summer’s day will take the shine off even the most serene of destinations. If you can, visit in the quieter autumn or spring seasons, and aim for an early morning or late afternoon visit to avoid peak hour rush.
Getting there
This hilltop palace is quite the walk, but the views at the summit make this well worth the trek. For those less interested in the stroll, buses run regularly from Granada city’s Plaza Isabel la Catlica to the top of Alhambra, while taxi journeys to the palace are also quite cheap, especially if you’re carpooling.
Money saving tips
Advanced bookings are the best asset for those on a budget. Food and beverages are limited to a few options once inside the Alhambra Palace and aren’t exactly budget-friendly, so packing your own lunch is a great way to save on expenses.
