Tour the Alhambra in Granada

It could be said that there is no visit to Granada without seeing the Alhambra, one of the most visited monuments in Spain. It should be noted that the Alhambra is made up of different spaces, so it is important to know which ones you want to visit when buying your tickets.

Some of the essential spaces are Los Palacios Nazaríes, La Alcazaba, El Generalife, El Partal and El Palacio de Carlos V. 

  • The Nasrid Palaces: They are a palatine complex formed by two independent palaces, the Palace of Comares and the Palace of the Lions, and another, Mexuar.
  • La Alcazaba: It is a fortress located at the western end of the Sabika hill. It is the oldest part of the Alhambra that is still preserved.
  • The Generalife: It is made up of buildings, patios and gardens in the Nasrid Arab style. In 1984 it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
  • The Partal Palace: It is located within the Alhambra fortress complex, built at the beginning of the 14th century by the Nasrid ruler Muhammad III. 
  • The Palace of Charles V: It is a Renaissance construction located on the Alhambra hill. It is currently the headquarters of the Museum of Fine Arts of Granada and the Alhambra Museum.

To make the most of your visit, we recommend planning ahead and booking tickets early, as access is limited to protect the site. It is important to wear comfortable shoes due to the uneven surfaces and prepare the visit taking into account the schedules of the Nasrid Palaces.

After visiting the Alhambra, you can enjoy other cultural activities in Granada, such as a flamenco show at Flamenco Palacio Granada, explore the Albaicín neighborhood, or relax in the Arab baths. Another option is to visit the Palacio de los Olvidados, which has a viewpoint with views of the Alhambra and inside is our flamenco tablao with live music and dancing.

Visit the Palace of the Forgotten

The Palacio de los Olvidados is a museum in Granada located on the Santa Inés slope, in the lower Albaicín. This neighborhood was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1994. The building is an old palatial house from the 16th century that is dedicated to the Spanish Inquisition, Jewish history and Granada and Andalusian heritage.

As a curiosity, the name “Palace of the Forgotten” is due to its shield, which many years ago had to be removed by the family that lived there to convert to Christianity, after the conquest of the Catholic Monarchs and the expulsion of the Arabs. .

If you decide to visit the Palace, you will be able to enjoy stately rooms and the best views of the Alhambra and the Albaicín from its viewpoint and terraces. Currently, you can visit the permanent exhibition of the inquisition and see live flamenco at the flamenco tablao located inside.

The Palacio de los Olvidados has more than 70 torture instruments and works of art on display, from which the Spanish inquisition and the life of the Jewish community in Granada are narrated. This is a very interesting exhibition that can be visited from Monday to Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The option we recommend if you want to visit the Palace is to buy the Flamenco and Museum Pack, which includes a visit to the Inquisition museum and a live flamenco show.
