How to buy tickets and visiting the Alhambra


  • 1. ADVANCE BOOKINGS

    One option is to buy your ticket up to three months in advance. We recommend booking as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

  • 2. ONLY BUY THROUGH OFFICIAL CHANNELS

    Inside the Palace of Charles V

    There are two ways of buying your ticket in advance. You can buy it from the official website or by calling +34 858953616.

  • 3. CHOOSE THE RIGHT TYPE OF TICKET

    The general ticket grants access to all areas open to the public. The gardens ticket, meanwhile, only grants access to the main landscaped areas. There are also two tickets for night-time visits: one for the palaces (available throughout the year) and one for the Generalife Gardens and Palace (available from April to November). The “Alhambra experiences” ticket includes a night-time tour of the Nasrid Palaces, and a daytime tour of the gardens the next day. Both grant free access to the Palace of Charles V and the Alhambra Museum.

  • 4. NOTE WHEN TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN UNDER 12 YEARS OLD

    Tickets are free for the children, but must be purchased in advance at the same time as the adult ticket(s).

  • 5. ORGANISE YOUR VISIT AROUND THE VISITING TIMES OF THE NASRID PALACES

    A visit lasts approximately three hours, although the Nasrid Palaces have set visiting times that are allocated when purchasing the ticket. These cannot be changed. You should therefore plan your visit around these times. We recommend the following two itineraries: Alcazaba – Palaces – Generalife, or alternatively, Generalife – Alcazaba – Palaces. Bear in mind the following distances: it takes 15 minutes from the entrance to the Alhambra to the Generalife, 17 to the Nasrid Palaces, and 20 to the Alcazaba.

  • 6. HOW TO GET TO THE ALHAMBRA

    If you’re driving, bear in mind that you need to make your approach from the southern ring-road (Ronda Sur), since private vehicles are not permitted to approach from the city centre. You may find it more convenient to take a taxi or the C3 or C4 local bus (it takes 15 to 20 from Plaza de Isabel La Católica, in Granada) or catch the “Granada City Tour” tourist train. If you decide to walk, it takes about 20 minutes from Paseo de los Tristes or from Plaza del Realejo.

  • 7. ALLOW PLENTY OF TIME TO COLLECT YOUR TICKETS

    You must collect your tickets at least an hour before the start of your visit to the Nasrid Palaces. Tickets purchased online or over the telephone must be collected from the ticket machine by the Entrance Pavilion, for which you will need the credit card you used when making the purchase. Alternatively, if the tickets are in your name, you can also collect them from the ticket desk on producing a printout of your receipt, the confirmation number and your ID or passport.

  • 8. IF YOU HAVEN’T PURCHASED YOUR TICKET YET, YOU CAN DO SO ON THE DAY OF YOUR VISIT

    While we don’t advise leaving it until the last minute, advance booking is available up to two hours before your visit. You also have the option of buying tickets when you arrive at the monument. There is no guarantee whatsoever that tickets will be available, and tickets bought at the Alhambra will only be valid for that day. Payment is by credit card (from the ticket machines) or by cash (at the ticket desk) only.

  • 9. YOU CAN TAKE A VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE ALHAMBRA WHILE EAGERLY AWAITING THE DAY OF YOUR VISIT
