A stunning restful place on earth with an Autumn backdrop of golds, reds and yellows of the Autumn sweet chestnuts against a further backdrop of the snow caped Sierra Nevada mountains, surely the best time o see this world heart age site.

Our first stop around the Alhambra compound was Generalife. Awesome gardens, beautiful sites and you can see how much they take care of this treasure. Also a great view of the Alhambra from a different angle!

So nice to visit these beautiful gardens which are refreshing when facing the crowds at Alhambra. I took home a few ideas for my own gardening. If possible try to get tickets for a music or dance performance which occasionally take place in the summer. That would really make this a unique experience.

Having visited previously in summer a couple of years ago , this was my first late season visit . The gardens are still looking good with nice flowers and on a nice sunny autumn day a really nice walk round for an hour or so. There tends to be fewer people in here than in the Nasri palaces and being able to wander at our own pace made the visit a good warm up for the Nasri palaces later in the day . There are lots of good photo opportunities, so don’t forget your camera .

We visited the house of the sultans, called Carmen and the adjacent, vast gardens during a visit to the Alhambra and Granada. The tour has to be prebooked through a guide.

The venue is stunning and parts of the house are under restoration. The gardens are beautifully laid out and provide unparalleled views across the city and Sierra Nevada mountains. Thoroughly recommended.

Even in the autumn, the Generalife is worth a visit. You won't have many flowers but you'll still get the greenery, the gorgeous layout of the gardens, and the palace of the Generalife with its fountains and spectacular views. If you have tickets to the Nasrid palace, when you exit you come out onto the path to the Generalife that is already past the ticket check. So you can save yourself the hassle of being in yet another line by just going straight from the palace to the Generalife.

Fantastic views to the Alhambra, across the city and beyond.

Beautiful gardens too.

A must see!

A lovely balance to the Alhambra palace. The gardens are magnificent. And how convenient to have your country home a mere 200 yards from your main residence!

I’d fight the government to keep this too! What an incredible work of architecture and landscaping.

The moors has an incredible knowledge about water.

This place is amazing.
