Question about Alhambra entry

by jadedtourist

Hi,

I have just booked tickets to visit the Alhambra on Dec 26th 2010. I have chosen a 1 PM slot for the Nasrid palace. Does this mean I have to visit Generalife before 1 PM? The ticket is a general diurna ticket. There is no specific mention of morning or afternoon slot in the ticket.
Thanks for your response.

Re: Question about Alhambra entry

Yes the morning ticket you have booked allows you to visit the ticketed entry areas like the Generalife and the Alcazar overlooking the city before 2pm. Actually from around 8am. Once you have entered the Nasrid palaces entry point at 1pm you can stay as long as you like so visit the other ticketed entries first. You may need at least 2 hours to appreciate the place.

You can see that the 'daytime general ticket' is divided into morning and afternoon slots on the official site here:

http://www.alhambra-patronato.es/index.php/Daytime-general-visit/240+M5d637b1e38d/0/

As your Nasrid time is 1pm you have a morning ticket.

Thank you...Another question - Would Mirador De San Nicolas be open on Dec 26th, given its a Sunday as well? Otherwise I might have to move the visit and purchase tickets again for the next day :-(

Re: Question about Alhambra entry

Please do explore the official website. Its English version gives you lots of information.

You can find opening times and days here;

http://www.alhambra-patronato.es/index.php/Schedules/195+M5d637b1e38d/0/

You'll notice that it is shut on 25th December and 1st January, but otherwise ope throughout the year (with varying opening/closing times).

Thanks Leics..I was actually asking about Mirador San Nicolas, I have already booked Alhambra tickets for Dec 26th...

Re: Question about Alhambra entry

O duh! I am so sorry......I did not read your post carefully. I do apologise.

Re: Question about Alhambra entry

by puerto_lover

Mirador is a 'view point' and yes this is available all year. In fact there are various view points on the Albayzin hill. The one I like is at Mirador De San Cristobal - see here:

Re: Question about Alhambra entry

by Aitana

Mirador de San Nicolas and Mirador de San Cristobal are view points. Both are squares, public space, where you can move freely.
Look some tips and see the pictures (here on VT or at any other source) to have an idea of the places you want to visit, it usually helps.
Enjoy Granada!

Re: Question about Alhambra entry

by Mozumbus

Just to reimphesize that you HAVE to see al the controlled places including Generalife before 2 pm ergo before Nasrid Palace. Once you enter into the Palace, within your timeslot, you may remain inside even after 2 pm. And once you are out of the Palace, you may remain inside the viccinity except for controlled sites. As suggested above the Palace requires good two hours to apprecite the genius...

Ciao

Thanks every one.I am now back from my trip..I had 2 nights and about 1.5 days in Granada. In hindsight we needed about 3 full days to do justice to the town. Anyway we really enjoyed the stay and the views from the Alhambra were magical, although a bit disappointed that the Patio of lions was under renovation. But overall it was great..

Glad you had a good time. :-)

Travel Tips for Granada

Climate

by keeweechic

Granada is best visited during the Autumn and Spring months – the daytime temperature is perfect. The hottest time is during July and August, although it is a dry heat. Temps can reach up to 40C. The winter months are not too bad although the evenings can get cold and there is the odd frost here and there.

PALACE OF CARLOS V

by LoriPori

At the center of the Alhambra stands the massive PALACE OF CARLOS V(Palacio de Carlos V), an outstanding example of Spanish Renaissance architecture, built in 1526. Inside you will find the Alhambra Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts.

azulejos - tilework artistry

by willy_wonka

the whole iberian peninsula during the period of the moors was reknown for the amazing artistry of tilework. while better example of moorish azulejo might be found in portugal, or within spain, sevilla, the alhambra also does not disappoint, with numerous rooms throughout the palace displaying this fine work.

POMEGRANATES

by BerniShand

Pomegranates are everywhere in Granada, on floors, adorning walls, carved into stonework and doors and even sticking up in the street for unsuspecting tourists to walk into and bruise their shins
when you visit Granade look carefully and see how many different typse of things you can see with the pomegranate symbol on them, you find them in the most unexpected places

the pomegranate symbollises fertility
