When you’re in Granada, make sure not to miss the impressive Palacio de Generalife on your visit to the Alhambra. The palace is the former summer residence of the Sultans of Granada, and together with its gardens, it has been part of the Alhambra’s UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1984. Tickets are available in combination with the Alhambra and can be booked online in advance to avoid long lines.

Book Tickets in AdvanceThere are a limited number of tickets sold for the Alhambra and Generalife every day, so if you’re visiting during the peak tourist season it’s especially important that you book early. If there aren’t any tickets left on the official website, you can often find some last-minute availability on a guided tour or night tour.

Experience the Magic by NightAfter night falls, you can enjoy a unique experience in the gardens of the Generalife as you take a tour in the dark! You’ll be shown elaborate mosaics and over 600 species of plants, all under the starry sky of Granada.
The Perfect RouteIf you’re planning to visit the Alhambra, the Alcazaba, and the Generalife on the same day then you should start your tour in the gardens of the Generalife. It’s the most efficient way to see everything on foot without a guide.
Enjoy the ShadeWhen the heat of the Andalusian summer becomes too much to bear, the water features and pavilions of the Generalife’s gardens offer a shady alternative to the other courtyards. You should also make sure to pack plenty of water, sunscreen, and a hat to avoid getting sunstroke.
