This complex was superb, visited as part of a tour to the Alhambra. Restoration work was in progress but this did not detract from the visit

This is when you are entering the Alhambra museum, the first location to walk through, just follow the signs.

just beautiful, it is so nice to walk around, the patios and the gardens. We did not get to see everything in full bloom, but I imagine it is quite a sight.
