The Alhambra consists of a few different buildings but the Generalife is my favorite. It's a beautiful place to sit and watch the world go by. You can stay for as long as you want, just don't expect to re-enter once you've left.

The gardens are stunning even in winter. Around every corner is another delightful surprise. You can lose yourself for many hours here.

We visited this area as part of our walk around Alhambra. Beautifully laid out gardens and plenty of places to sit and relax and enjoy the views. There is a fee to get in either separately or as part of the Alhambra experience.

We went in winter... it was cold, wet and raining. Still good to see and look around but a sunny summer visit may be different.

Further: The citrus trees may have fruit but the likelihood of flowers would be low HOWEVER you can certainly expect to be able to enjoy the Alhambra and Generalife with less crowds so you will be able to see the buildings... More

Hello, I was there again in April 2017 and the beds were in full bloom so nothing to worry about if April is your choice.

Hi , you need to take a taxi to the entrance gates, it is very hilly to get up there. Inside there is a lot of walking ,we took one of the guided tours and were walking for nearly 3 hours so be prepared .
