Alhambra en Nazrid palace


Because I will arrive in Granada by noon and leave the next day in the morning, I have booked my tickets for the Alhambra on the internet. Because in the booking proces they asked me for my time of visit, I made some calculations and gave up the time I would be able to make it to the Alhambra (14u30 in my case). After I confirmed the booking, a window opened up with the message that I needed to visit Nazrid Palace between 14u30 and 15u00 and that I should come well in advance. Does this mean that you should visit the rest of the Alhambra before 14u30, or can we still visit the Generalife, etc. after we have visited Nazrid palace? I my case, I will not be able to arrive much earlier than 14u30.

The times for entry to the Nazrid Palaces are given to regulate visitors through the buildings and courtyards. You should enter within that half hour time slot. Your ticket can allow you to visit the rest of the complex including Generalife at any time during your entire afternoon.

You will need to get to the ticket office at least 1/2 hour before the time on your ticket, 14.00 in your case. Personally, I would try to get there for 13.30. There are often long queues at the ticket office & then you have to make your way to the palace, so give yourself plenty of time.

The time slot is to enter the Nasrid Palace, you can visit the rest of the Alhambra before or after you have been to the palace.

Get to the Alhambra at 1.30 -

At 1.45 pm

Take a spin round the Alcazaba (the castle like bit)

Get into the queue for the Nasrid Places at 2.30.

After the palaces, come out and visit the Partal gardens then go up towards the Generalife.

The generalife normally takes 45-60 minutes.

There is some info about choosing when to visit the Alhambra on this page

I think this website explains it really well. Be very vigilent of your time as you dont want to miss getting in that section during your half hour window of time. You can always see the other 2 sections after the Nazarid palace section without any problems and at your leisure. You will love the Alhambra, enjoy!
