About Nasrid Palaces Visit

Unlike the rest of the Monument, the Nasrid Palaces may only be accessed in the hour indicated on your ticket, due to limited capacity. If you do not visit them in this time slot you will lose your right to visit this part of the Alhambra. If your time slot for the Nasrid Palaces corresponds with the final entrance of the day (one hour before closing time), it is recommended that you visit the Generalife and the Alcazaba prior to entering the Nasrid Palaces, which take at least a half hour to tour.
