Another great site in the Alhambra ticket price. Be sure and walk around the palace, doesnt take very long. Included in your ticket price. Easy stroll around the grounds

It was quite the unexpected surprise to see this palace within The Alhambra. We made mental notes to research and study more about it after returning home. Be sure to take a few minutes to visit and take it all in. Such history!

A palace of unique architecture, magnificent and amazing inside Alhambra, and next to the Nasrid palace that you should also visit. Charles V demolished a palace in that existed in this location to built his own and judging from the outcome, it was worth it.

Compared to the rest of the Alhambra there isn’t much here. It is worth a few minutes to check it out but if you miss it oh well.

Not the best collection of art in the world, but an interesting overview of Granada art, with some spectacular finds, especially from the early 20th century. The art is displayed beautifully. An impressive building as well.

It was raining. We went in, and ended up visiting the museums. One is focused mainly on Muslim artifacts, and is free. The other has a nominal charge (E1.50, I think). There is an impressive collect of art here. We enjoyed both museums.

It would be impressive. Probably. But now this massive monster incorporated amidst gracious Moorish architecture looks like some concrete apartment block of the sixties, 20th century in the middle of a medieval city. No wonder that royals (or even non-royals) never inhabited or even finished...More

This wonderful building is one of the first things you see upon entering the Alhambra complex through the Gate of Justice and is of course included in the cost of your entry ticket. The inside was for me even better and totally unexpected - breath...More
