About Nasrid Palaces Visit

The access to the Nasrid Palaces is different from the rest of the monument, because it is strictly limited to the hour indicated on the ticket due the restrictions on maximum capacity in this area. If you do not visit the Palaces within the indicated hour, you will lose the right to visit this area, although you can visit the rest of the Monument. Do not forget that the visit to the Nasrid Palaces finishes an hour before the closing time, and it takes at least 30 minutes, so you should visit the Generalife and the Alcazaba before.
