We purchased combination tickets several weeks in advance to tour the foundation and the Alhambra. We took the number 30 bus, 1.20 euros, from the Cathedral to the bus stop at the Hotel Alhambra Palace at the top of the hill on Cuesta del Realejo. The entrance is located 900 feet away at 8 Callejon Nino del Royo. We toured the foundation for about one hour together with just one other visitor in the late morning of Sunday, 11 May.
The compound contains the home and studio of artist José María Rodríguez-Acosta (1878-1941). The well maintained gardens and patios provide attractive settings for Greek, Roman and Chinese art and provide scenic views of Granada. The building contains underground rooms and passageways. The tour is topped off with a visit to the gallery containing some spectacular medieval art. The visit was a pleasant prelude to our afternoon tour of the Alhambra, a fifteen minute walk further up the hill.
