Despite the heat the gardens were an extremely pleasant place to be. Really well kept and a great deal of variety of plants and styling. The free water fountains in the gardens were most welcome. Plan to spend about 2-3 hours here, just wandering about...More

The Summer Palace, beautiful. We really enjoyed our visit and I don't think a visit to the Alhambra would be complete without visiting this too.

Grounds are well maintained... walk around relax and maybe get a good picture of the reflecting pond.

These terraced gardens are spectacular! Endless detail, surprising vistas and a charming home away from the palace at the top. Well worth the time.

Opted for the 3 hour tour which included the Alhambra. Would strongly recommend using a tour guide and booking well in advance. Very crowded, but the tours were well coordinated to avoid over crowding at particular points.

Nice place, peaceful and looks really lovely. Its a nice place to roam and be inspired by the scenary. I did not quite understand why it is called generallife and I still do not have a clue.

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 .

Try to go early to the queue, you should get your tickets. Or if you are at a hotel try to get a tour, because the gardens are better to see on tour with good guide!! Nice trip

You can purchase the combined ticket which includes the gardens, or you can purchase a ticket for the gardens on their own for 8 Euros. When we were there last month, the combined tickets were sold out but we were able to... More
