Alhambra Tickets

by hawkhead

I would like to buy Blue Circular passes for the Alhambra - these give one day entrance and one evening entrance on two consecutive days. Trouble is, I can't find where to buy them on the Alhambra website. One can buy day tickets, evening tickets, garden tickets and something else but nowhere that I can find where to buy any of the passes. It's probably blindingly obvious, so I would be very grateful if someone could point me to it!!

Yes, thank you, Pedmar. So, one either buys online two separate tickets (one for the day and one for the evening for the dates one wants) or else waits until one is actually in Granada, go to the Alhambra and hope that they have availability. Very strange. I think it's worth paying the extra €4 and buying the two tickets!!

Re: Alhambra Tickets

When I went through this several years ago it turned out the only thing important to do was make the reservation for Nasrid Palace (which may take a few attempts until the time selected at random works for you). Once I showed up with my reservation, there was a short line at the machines to get the tickets and in 5 minutes I was in. It could be getting the Blue Circular take more interaction with the ticket office. Karl

According to this site:

The Blue Circular pass is something planned for the future...

So Pedro, does being an honorary member of the Granada Football Club entitle you to a free Alhambra beer once in a while? ;-)

So, a Blue Circular Pass is available if one turns up, not available online? How useful. Let's hope the technology catches up soon. Thank you, folks!

Travel Tips for Granada

The Alhambra

by hamletgarrido

Is the topic but is unique, If u come to granada u must see, in spanish there is a tipical sentence that says: no hay cosa mas triste q ser ciego en granada. there isn't a saddest thing that be blind in Granada, so dont be blind, open your eyes, enjoy, breathe, sit take your time. The Magic of the atmosphere

The Alhambra for Free!!!!!

by blint

If you miss out on a ticket or can't afford the ticket all is not lost because you can get in for FREE!!! How you may ask? Well this is how... and it's all above board and legal.....

There are 2 gateways in between Cuesta de Gomerez and the Alhambra ticket office (in the park). One of the gateways is a stunning Arabic arch. Anyway, if you walk through one of these gates you are in!!! Then why do so many pay you may ask?!? Well it's because you can't get into everything if you don't pay. You can only really walk round the complex you can't enter the palaces for example! But for some to see the old Arabic architecture from the outside is enough. You can also go in the shops or enjoy a beer looking out over the albaicin!

I hope you find this tip useful!

Christmas

by raquelitalarga

If you are planning a visit over the Christmas period be aware that Christmas Eve is the time when most bars and restaurants will be closed! This is because families have their Christmas meal in the evening. So if you are staying in a hotel then maybe it's best to eat there that evening or else seek out a venue pretty early on as it will be very quiet!! Families venture out for midnight mass if they are religious, which I suppose would be an interesting sight for tourists interested in local customs.

Catch a bus to Güejar Sierra

by raquelitalarga

The Güejar Sierra bus leaves from el Paseo de Salon and takes 40 minutes. First bus of the day leaves at 7.20 and the last at 23.00. The route is worth it just for the views as you wind your way up the mountain.
When you get there you'll find a traditional (slowly expanding) village near the reservoir. There are a couple of good bars and pretty church but the real reason to visit is the natural park (signposted from the village). It's a bit of a pain to have to walk along the road following the river for 2 miles before you get to the real park 'wilderness' (especially the trek back...mostly uphill to get the return bus !). There is an attractive restaurant half way along this route, we had a very tasty meat dish there once. Also there's the reward of a small bar to have a limon in once the road finishes and need a rest before you set off on one of the paths. Listen out for the clinking of goat bells and be prepared to turn a corner and find a bull blocking your way!!

Live Music

by blint about Liberia

I've just come back from a great jazz and blues concert in the bar Liberia. Although it is a small bar with a very annoying pilar, it has a great atmosphere (and the concert was very good too). I paid 3 euros to enter, but then I got a free drink (a VERY strong rum and coke even for Spain).

It also has a pool table which is uncommon in Andalucia.

A big thumbs up.

There seemed to be a lot o foreign students there. Though the crowd was off all ages. Anything you like!
