“Well preserved ”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

Well worth the 2 Euro entrance fee for the guided tour around the building. There isn't a huge amount to see, but the preservation means that you start to get a fuller idea of exactly how impressive the Alhambra would have been when the original colours were still present.

“A Peek into Past Era”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

Only €2 per adult (kids are free) its worthwhile taking a few minutes to view this place.
First a madrasah for Muslim professors and students - the architecture is stunning! Then a city council when the Christian monarchs - great paintings, then a home for a rich family, it is now part of University of Granada. How awesome to sit for a lecture amidst such history!

“Well worth a quick visit”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

If you have any interest in Islamic history or architecture, the mirhab is a beautiful little room that still shows some of the colours that have faded from similar rooms in the Alhambra. The whole tour is quite short but informative and worth the 2 euro admission (children 13 and under were free when we visited).

“Impressive place to enjoy a guided visit”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

If you want to see the original colours of the Alhambra stucco you should take a guided visit for only 2 euros. The visit takes about half an hour, the guide knows really a lot about the history of this lovely place. It is open all day and does not close like the royal chapel and the cathedral.

“interesting”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Interesting visit. This was apparently the 1st muslim university in Granada (or Spain if I recall correctly). They still have some ruins there.
