Does a Bono turistico pass give entry to Alhambra at night?

Thanks

1. Re: Alhambra at night

My idea is that when the visitors to the day time sessions both morning and afternoon became too numerous then the administrators decided to offer new evening times to accommodate those who could not buy the normal general day ticket. So a sort of overflow to satisfy the demand. An evening visit to either the the Nasrid Palaces or the Generalife was devised at a lower cost than the regular day price. Whether the Bono Pass gives the holder the right to go in the evening in place of a daytime visit is unknown to me and you may need to ask the tourism people and issuers of this pass. Unless you are going at a very busy tourist season time it would be highly likely that you can buy an evening ticket in Granada. My opinion.

Thank you. This gives me another lead to follow up. We will be there in early September which I believe is quite busy. I've tried booking online with Ticket master but without success - possibly due to using incompatible browser or credit card! But will keep trying up until we actually depart Granada ....

Other people trying to book Ticketmaster from Oz have experienced problems. Connection between Oz bank and Visa Spain that Ticketmaster use seems terrible. Other visitors ask their hotel to organise tickets. Many help with this and frankly a daytime visit is best unless you have no time in Granada.

Daytime visit is the must-do; nightime visit is an interesting contrast but does not replace need for the daytime visit.

Yes, we're hoping to do both.

Thank you again. We did manage to get to the Nasrid palaces at night - quite spectacular! We were thrilled with both experiences - night and day equally yet very differently, despite the crowds. We gave up on trying for advance tickets and purchased them on site in the morning for that same evening. It is sometimes possible also to get tickets for the next day at the Alhambra book shop in central Granada.
