Alhambra Palace was the summer palace and country estate of the Nasrid Emirs (Kings) of the Emirate of Granada in Al-Andalus, now beside the city of Granada in the autonomous community of Andalusia, Spain.

the tower offers stunning views of the city and the alhambra. built in the 13th century, the surrounding gardens date back to the 17th century. originally a military fortification, this is the oldest part of the Alhambra palace.

The Alcazaba isn't as ornate as the palaces of the Alhambra, but it is still one of the most impressive sites on the complex. There are a lot of steps, but from the higher levels you'll get the best view of the city! The way this section is set up really gives you the feeling of what it must have been like historically.

The Alcazaba is the ancient military complex at the Alhambra. The watchtowers here provide beautiful views of the Alhambra complex and the city of Granada.

We recommend taking the guided tour.
Book it in advance, there is a daily limit on number of visitors, the morning hours (10:00) are best.

"Alcázaba" es una palabra que deriva del árabe y significa "fortaleza". Es de las primeras construcciones de la Alhambra y es la más tosca de todas las secciones porque era justamente defensa y no palacio. De todas formas, de muchas de sus torres de vigilancia se tienen unas vistas increíbles a la ciudad y se pueden subir, siendo las más visitadas la Torre del Cubo, de la Vela y del Homenaje.

Para entrar en la Alcázaba hay que presentar el ticket de ingreso a la Alhambra.
