Alhambra at Easter

by greenday

Hi, I am making advance plans for Easter 2011. From the information I can find the only days the Alhambra will be closed are Christmas and New Years Day. Can anyone please verify this? Also would it be very crowded over the Easter holiday at the Alhambra, or for that matter in Granada? Thanks

Re: Alhambra at Easter

by puerto_lover

The Alhambra is open every day of the year except Christmas Day and New Years Day.

The Semana Santa period is certainly busy but not as busy as Seville for sure. So its a good idea to make reservations as early as allowed for the Alhambra entrance ticket or maybe you will go more than once during your stay? Maybe if you stay on a Friday or Saturday you could experience an evening visit as well?

Easter in Spain is 'Semana Santa' (translation; saints's week) and is very important in this very traditional, catholic city. So yes, Granada will be absolutely packed as there are processions all week through the centre. They make a great spectacle (costumes, hoods, candles, bare feet, Virgen Maria etc)but block streets and cause traffic and pedestrian chaos. Pretty sure prices go up significantly for accomodation too.

Hi, thanks for your answers and the link. I will be booking accommodation soon so the info is very helpful. We were thinking of the day and night entries to the Alhambra so we should easily be able to fill in a couple of days in Granada.

I would consider booking your Alhambra tickets in advance :-)

Travel Tips for Granada

WALK WITH ME AROUND THE ALHAMBRA

by BerniShand

OK, so you have taken the minibus here, or perhaps you are super fit and walked up the steep hill, we collected our tickets [booked online] at the ticket office, so lets explore

its 9.30, our ticket time for the Nasrite palace says 10am so we wont dawdle too much, our path takes us past the ruins of the Medina and through the gardens of El Secano, lets stop for a moment to admire the view, we can see snow on the mountains and the air is fresh and crisp - no rain today ! the sky is grey over the mountains but it will soon be blue

we walk along the path admiring the clipped trees, peek through and there is a view of the Parador of San Francisco, we would have loved to have stayed there, but it is way above our budget

but lets hurry ! we cant wait to enter the Palace ! just enough time for a `comfort stop` at the facilites and it will be 10am and we can go in

Alhambra Tip 5 - The Generalife

by jamiesno

Most likely if you are in Granada you are going to visit the Alhambra, this is just a friendly reminder not to forget the Generalife when you are there. The gardens are beautiful and if it is a sunny day you can see for miles. You get a great view of Granada and the Sierra Nevada. Also be warned the Alhambra in general may be crowded, it is the most visited site in Spain.

Leisure villa of the sultans of Granada, surrounded by orchards and gardens, the latter created recently, together with the amphitheatre at the entrance, which every year is the setting for some of the shows of the Music and Dance Festival.

The name, of doubtful origin, seems to come from the Arabic Yanat- al- Arif or Garden of the Architect, in a clear poetical-religious symbolism that refers to God, Allah, as an architect, the creator of the universe.
It is worthwhile climbing the Water Staircase, especially in summer, to let the clear, cold water, which runs down the banisters, slip through your fingers. Be sure to follow this link along to myGeneralife Travelogue.

The part of the Alhambra was great.

Visiting Granada

by Dabs

Granada is set on a couple of hills so good walking shoes are essential. In early May I was fine with long pants and short sleeved shirts in the day, in the evenings we needed a light jacket or sweater You might want to bring sunscreen, I foolishly believe weather.com and thought it was going to be overcast and ended up with a bit of a burn. The sun is intense even into the late afternoon. Bring lots of memory and a spare battery if you have one for your digital camera, we both used up our batteries and I forget to swap out my flash card on the day we went to the Alhambra and didn't take as many pictures as we normally would have. I thought the Lonely Planet Andalucia guide was better than the Frommer's Seville, Granada & the Best of Andalusia, especially in their coverage of the Old Arab Quarter and the historical background.

Las Alpujarras (2)

by andal13

Another charming town at Alpujarras is Orgiva... white buildings, orange-trees, narrow streets, all surrounded by mountains. Take a seat at one of the several cafés situated in front of the church, have a drink and enjoy a peaceful day.

Otro encantador pueblo en Las Alpujarras es Orgiva... edificios blancos, naranjos, calles estrechas, todo ello rodeado de montañas. Toma asiento en uno de los numerosos cafés situados frente a la iglesia, bebe algo y disfruta de un día tranquilo.

A cheesy place to dance

by blint about Buda

It is like any other disco inside but it has large and small statues of Buda everywhere!
The music was all the normal Spanish stuff, but it looked like they avoided most of the really bad Spanish pop.

We didn't have to pay. I went in with trainers and everyone else there looked quite casual too.
