"Tickets" THE ALHAMBRA Tip by jackfruit

THE ALHAMBRA, Granada: 88 reviews and 128 photos

Favorite thing: Because it's such a huge tourist attraction, to maintain some semblance of order only 8000 tickets are sold each day. These can get sold out in the peak season, sometimes within hours of opening.

Alahambra attractions are:
Charles V palace (free)
Generalife gardens, Alcazaba and Palacio Nazaries ( 8 Euros)

When you purchase your ticket, it will be stamped with a 30 min window - this is the only time when you can enter the Palacio Nazaries, the biggest attraction at the Alahambra. Only a limited number of tourists are allowed to enter the palace grounds in a given time window. Once you enter, take your time and stroll through the palace at a liesurely pace. You can stay as long as you want.

I would strongly advise to pre-book your ticket using a BBV bank once you are in spain, or even use the website. You can specify your 30 min window when you pre-book the tickets.

Address: Calle Real s/n
Directions: Tel. bookings: BBV bank : 902 224 460 from Spain or through web site
Phone: 902 441 221
