Of the most romantic places in granada

It has been barely a month since I could visit the Alhambra, for the second time in just a year and as the traveller Joxu tells in his experience, it is definitely worth visiting the Gardens of Generalife. It is one of the most romantic places in Granada, and although the greatest protagonist is the Palacio del Generalife, it is the colours and the smell of the flowers that makes you feel intoxicated, as well as the sound of the water.

The visit can be done in approximately an hour and a half, and the board of the Alhambra recommends that you visit the Generalife last, not because it is less important, but more so for the order of the tour. Although it all depends on the time you will enter the Nasrid Palaces.

During our last visit we enjoyed the Generalife first and we liked it more than on the previous occasion. Not to be missed on the tour: la Alumnia del Generalife, los jardines nuevos (The new gardens), Palacio del Generalife (Genralife Palace), Patio de la Acequia (The Canal patio), el Mirador (The Viewpoint), the Sala Regia (The Regal sala), Torre de Ismaíl (Ismail's Tower), Patio del Ciprés de la Sultana (The Sultana's cypress courtyard), Jardines Altos (Upper Gardens) and Escalera del Agua (Water Staircase), and the Mirador Romántico (The romantic viewpoint).

Worth seeing

It is totally worth the visit and the 7€ extra for the Alhambra ticket!!

Last summer when I went to the lands of Granada, I was left really impressed after my visit to the monuments of the Alhambra, which actually have two parts, on the one hand the Alhambra, on the other the Generalife gardens.

The entrance fee to the Generalife gardens is 7€ and the opening hours are Monday-Sunday, from 8.30 am to 2 pm. In the afternoon the visits start at 2 pm and stop at 6 pm from November to February and to 8 pm when the days are longer from March to October.

The general visit of the Generalife gardens can last more or less an hour, if you take your time. Among the places that can be visited on the tour of the gardens you can see: Patio de la Acequia (The Canal Patio), La Escalera del Agua (The Water staircase), Paseo de los Cipreses (The Cypress Courtyard), los Jardines Altos (The Upper gardens), los Albercones, etc... Some of the most representative.

You can also take advantage of the visit by roaming the Palacio del Generalife located in the same Gardens.

The truth is they are worth seeing, as they are very well taken care of, and on top of that in full herbage, since I visited them at the end of August. Maybe during another season they are not so well preserved.

The gardens of the alhambra

The Gardens of the Generalife are part of a group of monuments in the Alhambra in Granada, and even though it is also worth visiting the Palacio del Generalife, it is possible to buy an entrance ticket for 7€ allowing you to visit only the gardens. Generalife means architect's garden, and walking through it for a couple of hours is really a delight: murmur of water, lushness of plants and relax 100%. What more could you ask for?
