Visiting the Alhambra step by step

If you are coming to Granada, surely you will be also interested in visiting the Alhambra. Shine hotels offers an accomodation with views of the Alhambra. We are located in the Albayzín, a very famous and traditional neighbourhood in the city center, right in front of the ancient Nasrid city. Today, we will give you some recommendations about how to visit the Alhambra step by step. Do not miss them!


This walled ancient city is considered the most influential expression of the Muslim art in Europe, and, because of the fact of being such an impressive monument we recommend you to visit it early in the morning to avoid the last-minute crowds.


The tour starts in the Alcazaba, the defensive and most ancient zone of the Alhambra. It consists of three towers, from where you will be able to enjoy the wonderful views of Granada. We will continue visiting the Nasrid Palacies, which provide a glimpse of the leisure area, the harem and the court of the lions. The last step of this visit is the Generalife, a rural palace which the Muslim kings of Granada used as a rest area. This ensemble combines buildings, gardens and little orchards. We recommend you to get your tickets enough in advance.


It is important to get well informed about the opening hours and the types of visits. The Alhambra offers its visitors a lot of possibilities; you can find especial route programms, night visits… But always remember to buy your tickets in advace through the original website of the Alhambra, especially between April and October, the months when our highest season takes place.
