But, without a doubt, the experience that will leave you speechless is the night visit. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the Alhambra!

Visit the Alhambra

With the Alhambra tickets, it is possible to access the site from three different entrances: North, South and East. This last option connects to the Generalife, access to which is restricted to those who do not have an admission ticket. This is the main entrance for visitors.

At the North access is the Puerta del Arrabal, which is located just below the tower of the same name. It was formerly the route used to reach the Generalife and it was reached from the slope known as Cuesta de los Chinos.

The South entrance, finally, is the one we recommend you take to begin your tour of the Alhambra. It is accessed, always on foot, from the square Plaza Nueva and the first view leads through a beautiful alameda from which to contemplate the extraordinary and majestic architecture that surrounds the splendid view.

Still on the outside, some of the parts that should be seen are: the Gate of Bib-Rambla, the Gate of the Chariots, the Gate of the Pomegranates, the Gate of Justice, the Pillar of Charles V and the Monument of Angel Ganivet. Each of them has its own particularities and of course its own history.

Inside the Alhambra

Once you have accessed the interior, the different parts of which it is made up, and whose visit is a must, are: the Alcazaba, the Bath of the Mosque, the Generalife, the Partal, the Palace of Carlos V and the Nasrid Palaces.

The Alcazaba

According to historians, this is one of the oldest parts of the building along with the Torre de los Bermejos. It is estimated that it was built in the 9th century, many years before King Muhammad ordered the construction of the fort, as well as the residence for his family, which dates back to the 12th century.

Partal Palace

The Nasrid monarch Muhammad IV, who met a century later, ordered the construction of this palace, which has the honor of being the oldest of those still standing today


Under the command of Sultan Muhammad II, this space was built, which was conceived as a place of recreation for royalty, as well as the royal garden. It is outside the walled area in a place that was baptized as Cerro del Sol.

Mosque bathroom

Muhammad III ordered the construction of a public bath in front of the mosque, although only a few rooms remain. In this mosque a church was built, already in the 16th century.

Nasrid Palaces

You have to go forward a century in time and place yourself in the reign of Ismail I to know that it was at that moment that the works of these palaces began. The Royal Palace of the Alhambra is divided into three very characteristic areas: the Palace of the Lions, the Palace of Comares and the Mexuar.

Palace of Charles V

Already in the 16th century, the monarch Carlos V announced the construction of his particular Palace after his marriage with Isabel of Portugal. At the time it was left unfinished and it was not until the 20th century that it was resumed and finished (1953).

What does Alhambra mean and why is it called that?

Alhambra in Arabic is al-Ḥamrāʼ (ال َح ْم َراء, ‘the Red’). The name “red” comes from the fact that when it was built, work was done at night, and seen at night, due to the light of the torches, it looked red.

Did you know...?

The Alhambra has survived earthquakes for centuries thanks to the fact that the walls are made of rammed earth and the columns have a sheet of lead between the base and the column, which makes the building dance if there are tremors. There are columns in the patios where the gray sheet of lead can be perfectly seen.

Did you know that Isabel la Católica was buried in the Alhambra?

After having recovered Granada from the hands of Boabdil, the Catholic Monarchs entered the Alhambra and were delighted. In fact, the Queen of Castile, upon seeing the Monastery of San Francisco, wanted to be buried there, “in a low grave without any name.” However, she only remained buried there until her grandson Charles V decided to move her to the Granada Cathedral.

Did you know that there was a love letter hidden for 92 years within its walls?

In 1921, Pepe wrote a letter to his beloved Emilia. In it he said that he would send another letter with a bunch of grapes as a token of his love. He hid in a nook of the church of San Gil de la Alpujarra (currently demolished) the letter that would be found in 2013 by a team of archaeologists. Of course, it is unknown what finally happened to the couple.

Did you know that the Alhambra is a sundial?

The Alhambra is one of the largest sundials on the planet. It is built in such a way that you can tell what time of day it is based on the shadow that the sun casts on the rooms. In fact, at midday half of the rooms are in the shade and the other half are sunny.

Did you know that the Alhambra is a city?

When we think of the Alhambra, we think of a building but it is not really like that, but rather it is an entire city. In fact, it is a palatine city made up of a set of palaces, gardens and a fortress that housed a true citadel within the city of Granada itself, which served as accommodation for the monarch and the court of the Nasrid Kingdom of Granada.

Did you know...?

Did you know that in 2011 it became the most visited monument in Spain, receiving more than 2 million visitors?

Why is the well-known Paseo de los Tristes called that?

Its official name is Paseo del Padre Manjón but this “sad” nickname is due to the fact that in the 19th century. XIX was the path to the San José cemetery (which was accessed through the Cuesta de los Chinos). The funeral processions passed through the Paseo del Padre Manjón and many people said goodbye to the deceased before going up the slope where the cemetery was located.

In Granada you can visit La Huerta de San Vicente, the summer home of Federico García Lorca.

In these perfectly preserved rooms overlooking a beautiful estate, this author gave birth to some of his most famous works (Blood Wedding or Doña Rosita la Soltera). Also within these thick walls, today converted into a museum with interesting relics, was where his parents received the heartbreaking news of his execution.
