The gardens of the Generalife were part of the Alhambra and played a double role : first it was a garden where was grown vegetables and fruits for the inhabitants, and second it was an "almunia", a villa where people from the Alhambra were going to escape the heat and the sun. Of course, the Generalife nowadays is very different from Middle Age. The gardens are works from the beginning of the 20th century. Still, it's wonderful.

Almost as good as the palace itself. We went at the perfect time of year, with orange blossoms and roses blooming almost everywhere you look. So impressed with the maintenance and obvious love that the staff have for the work that they do.

Gorgeous gardens, orange trees, beautifully situated overlooking Granada. Lovely to wander through the many different aspects of these gardens. A joy!

I booked my tickets to the Alhambra two and a half months in advance and it was sold out! Luckily I was about to get tickets to General Life which are the gardens outside the palace.

They do sell tickets the day of but there is only a very limited amount and the sell out quickly. People line up at 5am.

If you only have admission to general life, head down the path towards the palace anyway - there's much more to see!

Such a beautiful place to wonder around! I could have stayed here for hours. You spend a lot of time in the sun here, so be sure to bring sunscreen and a hat. Spectacular views, no matter how many pictures you take while you are there, when you get home, you will wish you had taken more!
