The Alhambra of Granada tips not to miss
For years we have watched sadly as our guests who stay in Casaenchilches.com they lose themselves again and again to be able to marvel at the so-called eighth wonder of the world: the Alhambra of Granada.
Our clients who are very far-sighted and who do not have more than the month of May already have their vacations and their itineraries, more or less thought, you can not spoil their vacations for small details.
Being on vacation in Chilches, in the countryside, next to the beach and only 1.5 hours from one of the wonders of the world is a privilege and they know it.
Our recommendations are simple:
- Visit the official websitel from the Alhambra in Granada and plan what you want to see. The only drawback I see is that it is only in English and Spanish 🙁
- Plan your itinerary and buy tickets in advance. That is to say when you already know in what dates it comes, CHOOSE your dates and YOUR VISITING HOURS. The number of visitors is limited, so do not miss it. Remember that only 30% of the tickets can be purchased at the box office without reservation. The massive influx of public at certain times, produces the uncomfortable queues
- You can also buy tickets at BBVA and Servicaixa ATMs if you are in Spain
Keep in mind that The Alhambra opens its doors to 8:30 and close the 18:00 in winter and to the 8pm in summer. Night visits start at 8:00 p.m. and end at 9:30 p.m. in winter and at 10:30 p.m. in summer. think that the general itinerary consists of 3.5 km and it takes some Three hours in traversing it.
So in summer, they should be provided with light clothes, water and a hat, and in winter they should wear a jacket because it can be cold, very cold. In spring and autumn, be cautious and do not think you are in Andalusia, the weather in Granada is capricious, so look at the Whaether forecast before going. But that if, always, with comfortable shoes.
Now, if you are late and want to enjoy the Alhambra as ordered, I invite you to go to the restaurant of a friend who is in the Albaycin neighborhood, to be more exact in the Cuesta de las Tomasas, 12. Albaycin, 18010 Granada. El restaurante se llama «Carmen de Aben Humeya» y podeis ir a su sitio web https://www.abenhumeya.com y disfrutar de su gastronomia, sus vinos y de sus vistas… No es necesario reservar mesa, aunque si lo quereis hacer, podeis hacerlo a traves de su web o llamando al telefono. Una vez que esteis disfrutando de una copa de vino, viendo la Alhambra desde su terraza, podeis hablar con Anuska, que es la artifice de toda la magia del sitio.
That yes, we must bear in mind that being located in the historic neighborhood of Albaycin, private cars have difficulty accessing it. So it is recommended to take bus lines 31 or 35 with connection to the Albaycin (stop Aljibe de las Tomasas), a taxi or go on foot and enjoy the neighborhood.
I can only say: Good trip friends
