Create an itinerary including Nasrid Palaces
Wander through the courtyards, halls, and corridors of Nasrid Palaces, the dwelling of the kings of Granada, and discover its secret spots. Dating back to the 14th century, the palatial complex was built near the Great Mosque and boasted three independent areas: one housing administration, the other serving as the king's official residence, and the last the private royal quarters, where the harem was located--notice how the artwork and decoration differs according to their functions. Note that you need to buy tickets at least a month ahead, especially if you plan to visit during the peak season.

  • Very impressive place with ornamental decorations. Great design and construction of rooms and rest gardens. The visit can take two hours if you have your own guide book and you read the information and look around. There are few wooden chairs to sit and enjoy the place. The tickets are bought for specific time and queue at the entrance is formed 5 - 10 minutes before this time.
  • The greatest palace in the whole world! I've never seen something like this before. The work is so intricate it would have taken years to finish, the scale is humbling, the conservation work the Spanish are doing is outstanding. It's truly an unparalleled experience! A glimpse into how Ferdinand and Isabella lived, despite their checkered colonial past two individuals that transformed the course of history and took Spain to new heights. Remember to book in advance!
