Of the three gates in the Alhambra walls, the Gate of Justice is the largest and most impressive entrance. 

It is also known as Gate of the Esplanade (Puerta de la Explanada) because of the vast esplanade that extends before it. 

If you don’t buy your Alhambra tickets in advance, you can get them from the ticket office situated at the Access Pavillion entrance.

Access Pavillion is 600 meters (approx half a mile) from the Gate of Justice. Directions to ticket office

How long does Alhambra take?

Most visitors to Alhambra take four to five hours to fully explore Alhambra Castle.

This involves a walk of around 3.5 km (2.1 miles) if you plan to see all the attractions within the Fort complex.

Here is the break up of the time you are likely to spend at Alhambra –

AttractionTime taken
Alcazaba15 to 30 mins
Nasrid Palace30 to 45 mins
Generalife30 to 45 mins
Charles V Palace15 to 30 mins
Museums (2)20 to 30 mins
*Walking 60 to 90 mins

*Since the attractions are at a distance from each other, you will spend considerable amount of time walking from one to the other.

Weekends and holidays attract a large number of visitors, which can further extend the time needed to explore Alhambra.

When you buy Alhambra tickets in advance, you save yourself 30 to 60 minutes waiting time at the ticketing counter queues.

Best time to visit Alhambra

Alhambra opens at 8.30 am, and the crowd starts coming in by 10 am, so the best time to visit Alhambra Castle is before 10 am. 

There are three major benefits of starting early – you get to avoid the hot Spanish sun, you avoid the crowd, and you also get to finish your tour by 2 pm and head to the city of Granada for lunch.

The second best time to visit Granada is 3 pm, after a nice local lunch in the city. 

By this time, the crowd has already left or is planning to go, and if you stay long enough, you also get to see stunning sunset views from the Towers.

In the summer: We suggest you start outdoors when the temperatures are still bearable. Once it gets hot, move indoors to the Nasrid Palaces.

In the winter: You must start your tour with Nasrid Palaces, and as the Sun comes up, and it gets warmer, move outdoors to Generalife and Alcazaba. 

*Entry to Nasrid Palace is timed.

Alhambra tickets

Alhambra is a complicated tourist attraction, and that’s why it is better to know everything before booking your Alhambra Granada tickets.

Alhambra Palace tickets

 

Crowd control through ticket sales

To protect the historic attraction from overcrowding, the authorities sell only 6,600 Alhambra Palace tickets every day. 

Visitors to the Nasrid Palaces are also restricted, and only 300 people are allowed inside every half hour. 

During peak months, Alhambra tickets sell out months in advance – sometimes 90 days in advance. 

This is why there is a huge demand for last minute Alhambra tickets.

Maximum number of tickets

Because of these strict restrictions, a person can only book ten tickets at a time. 

This means, if you are a bigger group, you must break it into two and book tickets separately. 

Are Alhambra tickets timed?

Yes, Alhambra entrance tickets have a time mentioned on them. 

This helps the authorities limit the number of people inside the attraction at any point in time. 

If you don’t enter the Fortress complex at the time specified on your ticket, you lose the right to visit this area.

The same applies to Nasrid Palace, which is inside Alhambra Fort – you must enter it in the time slot indicated on your ticket. 

Note: If your Nasrid Palace entry time is an hour before closing, you must explore Generalife and Alcazaba much before. 

Alhambra tickets at the door

Yes, visitors can buy tickets at the venue. 

The Alhambra ticket office is in the Access Pavillion, and from there itself, visitors can gain access to the Alcazaba, Nasrid Palaces, and the Generalife.

However, we won’t recommend that because the number of tickets sold every day is limited, and the day’s tickets get sold weeks (if not months) in advance. 

Besides, you also waste time getting from the ticket counters to the attractions within the complex. 

For instance, from the Alhambra ticket counters, you must walk:

  • 20 minutes to get to the Alcazaba
  • 17 minutes to reach Nasrid Palaces
  • 15 minutes to get to the Generalife

If you already have your entry tickets when you reach Alhambra, you can enter through the Gate of Justice, which is part of Alcazaba itself. 

Why online tickets are better

Three reasons why you must always buy Alhambra tickets online and in advance

1. With more than 7000 tourists visiting daily, the tickets dry up soon. You don’t want to reach there and find out that all tickets have sold out.

2. When you buy your Alhambra Palace tickets online, you don’t waste your time waiting in long ticketing counter queues

Queue at Alhambra ticket office
Waiting in such long lines at Alhambra’s ticket office is a waste of time, which can instead be used to explore the attraction. Image: Fromtheretoheretheblog.com

3. Entry to Nasrid Palaces is timed. When you buy tickets at the venue chances are you may get a time slot further away into the day because of which you may have to wait longer.

4. You miss the grand entry into Alhambra via the Gate of Justice because you must reach the ticket counters, which are at another entrance – the Access Pavillion.

Alhambra audio guide

When you book Alhambra tickets recommended below, you also get the audio guide with it. 

If you decide to buy tickets from the venue, you can pick up audio guides from the Entrance Pavilion (next to the ticket office) or the Palace of Charles V. 

These Alhambra audio guides are available in Spanish, Gallego, Catalán, Euskera, English, French, Italian, German, Dutch and Portuguese.

Recommended route at Alhambra Castle

In Arabic, Alhambra means ‘the red one.’ The complex gets its name from the reddish color of the tapia (rammed earth) used to build the outer walls.

If you have booked a guided tour at Alhambra, you don’t need to worry because your guide will handle the route for you.

However, if you love exploring attractions by yourself, here is a plan you can follow –

Step 1: Book a self-guided Alhambra ticket

Step 2: Enter the Fortress from the Gate of Justice. Directions

Step 3: There are three parts to the Alhambra fortress – Alcazaba, the Nasrid Palaces, and Generalife.

The best path to follow is: ALCAZABA >> NASRID PALACES >> GENERALIFE

So, head straight to Alcazaba and check out:

  • Torre del Cubo
  • Adarve of the North wall
  • Arms Square
  • Barrio Castrense
  • Terrace of the Puerta de las Armas
  • Torre de la Vela
  • Garden of the Adarves

Alcazaba takes 30 to 45 minutes, depending on your interest in history.

Since the tour of the Nasrid Palaces can only take place during the time indicated on your ticket, you must time your exit from Alcazaba properly.

Step 4: Alcazaba exit is only about 200 meters (650 feet) from the queue area of Nasrid Palaces.

You can be at the Nasrid Palaces entrance up to 30 minutes from the time mentioned on your ticket.

That is, if your ticket has 9.30 am mentioned on it, you will be allowed entry till 10 am. 

Get in and explore the following areas of Nasrid Palaces:

Mexuar

  • The Hall
  • Oratory
  • Gilded Room
  • Court of the Gilded Room

Comares Palace

  • Court of the Myrtles
  • Hall of the Boat
  • Hall of the Ambassadors. 

Palace of the Lions

  • Hall of the Mocárabes (Muqarnas)
  • Court
  • Hall of the Abencerrajes

  • Court of the Wrought Iron Grille
  • Daraxa’s Garden

The Partal

  • Pórtico del Palacio

  • Promenade of the Towers

Step 4: Your last stop will be Generalife, where you get to see:

Water Stairway
Court of the Sultana

Since there is a lot of walking, we recommend comfortable walking shoes.

If you are visiting during the summer, carry a bottle of water and sunscreen.

What to see at Alhambra

The Alhambra fortress complex has lots to see.

Check out the Alhambra map below to get a sense of the magnitude of the Castle, and its different parts.

Alhambra Palace's map
Image: Granatour.com

Everything that’s to see at Alhambra de Granada falls under five zones.

  1. Charles V Palace and surrounding areas
  2. Nasrid Palaces
  3. Alcazaba
  4. Towers and higher Alhambra
  5. Generalife

We explain these areas below –

1. Charles V Palace and surrounding areas

Besides the Palace, this area has three other attractions for the visitors to explore. 

Charles V Palace

Charles V Palace is a square building, and its main facade is 63 meters (206 feet) wide and 17 meters (56 feet) high. 

Don’t miss out its unique circular patio. 

Work started on this Renaissance-style Palace in 1527 and continued till 1957.

Justice Tower

The Justice Tower has many names such as Torre de la Justicia, Gate of Justice, Esplanade’s gate, etc. 

It is on Southern rampart of the fortress, next to Charles V Pillar, and if you have already bought your tickets online, this is the gate through which you will enter. 

The gate’s facade has a horseshoe arch, which is hard to miss as you walk in. 

Square of the Cisterns

Initially, this square was full of cisterns to store water for the use of the Royals living nearby. 

These cisterns were 34 meters (111 feet) long, 6 meters (20 feet) wide, and 8 meters (26 feet) high, but when they outlived their use, they were buried under soil, along with the surrounding streets to form the Square of the Cisterns. 

Wine Gate

This gate is supposed to be one of the oldest constructions in the Alhambra Fortress. 

It is believed that people entering Alhambra would leave the untaxed wine at this gate, giving it the name. 

2. Higher Alhambra and the Towers

This part of the Fortress has 10 Towers:

  1. Rauda Tower
  2. Tower of the Mihrab
  3. Ladies Tower
  4. Tower of the Points
  5. Tower of the Judge
  6. Tower of the Captive
  7. Tower of the Princesses
  8. Water Tower
  9. Tower of the End of the Street
  10. Tower of the Seven Floors

Each of these Towers has fascinating stories behind their names, and a guided tour of Alhambra is the best way to learn about them. 

Garden of the Partal

The Garden of the Partal is locally known as Jardines del Partal. 

This area used to be the gardens that surrounded the royal palaces.

During the Arab period, this space saw lots of buildings come up, which were occupied by the rich who could afford to live around the Royal Palace. 

Upper Alhambra

The Upper Alhambra, also known as Alhambra Alta, was higher than the Palaces, and a moat separated the two.

During the Arab period, this was a small town with many higher-ranking officials of the Court, religious and administrative centers living here. 

However, once Granada fell, they had to abandon the area, which was then destroyed or rebuilt.

3. Alcazaba

The Alcazaba, a fortress, is one of the oldest parts of the Alhambra.

Mohammed I built ramparts and towers around an already existing castle and established his Royal residence inside the fortress. 

His son Mohammed II also lived with his family in Alcazaba till the construction of the Palaces.

After the King moved to the Palace, Alcazaba only served military purposes. 

Arms Tower & Square

The Arms Square was the original entrance to the Alcazaba. 

Here, the civil population offered many services for the inhabitants of the fortress. 

Archaeologists have discovered the foundations of several Arab houses, where the civil population may have lived.

Located in the Northern ramparts, the Arms Tower was used to communicate with the city through the neighborhood of Almanzora.

Watch Tower

This Tower is 27 meters (88 feet) tall and has a bell on top. 

The inhabitants of the fortress used the bell to inform the valley’s farmers on when they must water their fields at night. 

The bell would start striking at 8 pm and would continue to do so at regular intervals till 4 am. 

Garden of the Ramparts

The Garden of the Ramparts is locally known as Jardines de los Adarves. 

Located near the entrance of the Alcazaba, this garden is on the parapet walk by the ramparts and offers beautiful views over the city of Granada. 

Don’t miss out on the lines by poet Francisco A. de Icaza on one of the garden’s wall. It reads: 

Give him alms, woman,
For there is nothing in this life
Like the grief of being
Blind in Granada

4. Nasrid Palaces

In Spanish, this Palace gets referred to as Palacios Nazaríes, and it has three independent areas:

Mexuar (Selamlik): The semipublic part of the Palace for justice administration and State affairs

Comares Palace (Palacio de Comares): The official residence of the King

Palace of the Lions (Palacio de los Leones): Private area of the palace, where the King’s harem was located

There are lots of points of interest to be seen at Nasrid Palaces, such as:

  • The Mexuar
  • Gilded Room and its patio
  • Court of the Myrtles
  • Comares Palace
  • Hall of the Boat
  • Hall of the Ambassadors
  • Palace of the Lions
  • Hall of the Mocarabes
  • Patio of the Lions
  • Hall of the Kings
  • The Emperor’s Chambers
  • Queen’s Dressing Room
  • Daraxa’s Garden
  • The Baths

5. Generalife Alhambra

The 13th century Generalife was the leisure place for Granada’s Kings when they wanted to get away from the official affairs of the palace. 

It is on the slopes of the Hill of the Sun (Cerro del Sol), which offers a peaceful view over the city and the rivers Genil and Darro. 

Even though Generalife is close to the Alhambra, it is considered to be outside the city. 

In fact, once when Mohammed V was resting in Generalife, a rebellion had broken out in Alhambra. 

Compared to the Alhambra fortress, Generalife is straightforward with no decorative excess or points of interest built into the architecture to enhance its beauty. 

The Patio of the Irrigation Ditch (Patio de la Acequia) is 48.70 meters long and 12.80 wide and is a significant part of the Generalife.

The channel of water has several jets on the sides, making it a beautiful site. The rest of the patio’s area has vegetation. 

Don’t miss out on the old cypresses that are in the verandas of Court of the Sultana’s Cypress Tree. 

The most famous of these trees is the Cypress of the Sultana, under which King Boabdil’s wife used to meet a knight of the Abencerrajes family.

When the King came to know he had the Knight’s family and his tribe killed.
