Excellent extension to the Alhambra Palace. Wonderful gardens, with spectacular views of the Sierra Nevada mountains and the city of Granada.

Amazing, amazing gardens. I couldnt't help but thinking what it would have been visiting it without the other few millions of people around you :). Anyway, they recreated a tiny speck of one of the posslble visions of paradise. Loved it.

This is the part of the Alhambra I was actually least impressed with. Still, it is a nice garden and garden palace but not extremely spectacular as there are similar buildings around Andalucia. The gardens are designed and maintained in a typical way old package tourists love - and there are huge amounts of them which makes relaxing and exploring... More

Generalife was apparently the place to go and relax in its day. And in many ways it still is. On the approach to it the rose garden, other floral displays and water features, sort of get you in the relax mode. The Generalifes' internals don't disappoint either, but not quite up to the standard of the Palaces. Despite this it's... More

Definitely, a nice place to check out which is to the side of Alhambra. We got a combined ticket for Generalife and Alhambra. Great view of Albaicin from here as well.

What a delight the gardens were. The roses were beginning to fade in places but so many flowers in a variety of colors and shapes. We went in the morning around 9:30. Took the C3 bus and wandered around for 2 hours. There were water fountains. Beautiful views of Alhambra, and the surrounding area framed by the architecture. We walked... More

As a part of the Alhambra you must visit this place. We used a guide. It was well worth it. Go early as it gets warm later in the day.

Tour the Generalife, a hilltop complex of gardens and historical structures, as part of your Alhambra visit. The gardens are beautiful and there is significant detail to absorb. Well worth the time.
