Itineraries. Organization of the visit.

Remember that you should organize your visit based on the entrance time to the Nasrid Palaces indicated on your ticket, given that you will only be able to access this part of the monument at that time.

  • Visits have an average duration of 3 hours.
  • It is advisable to rest a few minutes at the end of the visit to the Nasrid Palaces and the Generalife Palace.
  • It is recommended to wear comfortable footwear. In the summertime it is important to protect yourself from the sun.

For a better organization of the visit we suggest the following tours:

  • Alcazaba-Palaces-Generalife.
  • Generalife-Alcazaba-Palaces.


From the Entrance Pavilion (Ticket Office) it takes:

  • 20 minutes to get to the Alcazaba.
  • 17 minutes to get to the Nasrid Palaces. On weekends and holidays there could be a line to enter this section of the Monument. Keep that in mind to arrive at the Palaces at the time indicated on your ticket.
  • 15 minutes to get to the Generalife.


Additionally you can also visit the museums of Fine Arts, Alhambra and the Presentation Hall (situated in the Palace of Carlos V) and any of the spaces open to the public which are closed regularly. Please, ask at the Entrance Pavilion for more information.
