“A great emotion here !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

Many good memories here about a trip done when I was a student. Now the visit with my husband gives me other feelings admiring these lovely gardens and fountains.

“Exquisite gardens with amazing uses of water.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

The way they shape the bushes to make a beautiful maze is exquisite. Water is moved through the summer palace in a way that increases light and causes it to splash along stairways to cool the air in the buildings.

“Pretty, but needs some love”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

If you're already at the Alhambra, by all means, check this place out. We were there in November, so the flowers were not all in bloom, which is fine, but the gardens needed some love and maintenance to look their very best. The grounds are neat and it's a nice experience to sit near a fountain and imagine how the garden was used back in its heyday.

“Really beautiful !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

Went to the Generalife before the Palace as it was an afternoon visit, I think this is the way to do the afternoon trip in October. Everything is so well organised up there, we didn't feel at all crowded, bus service wonderful and very cheap...don't miss it!

“All part of the Alhambra experience - don't miss it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

Apparently often missed by tourists who have spent hours site seeing around the Alhambra and then run out of steam. Plan to spend a day at the Alhambra and General Life, stop and soak up the experience, the atmosphere and the clever design of the beautiful gardens.
