    what an amazing building. it has unique architecture and tremendous ornament pattern. The most interesting aspect is the architecture style. Combining Islamic Morish style and spain architecure style, make the building look amazing. Really nice to visit with your friends and families.

    À faire ! C'est exceptionnel et hors du temps. Un peu gâché par les touristes qui se prennent en photo sans arrêt à tel point que vous vous faite gronder si vous osez passer dans le champs d'une photo... Pour bien en profiter, je conseille de prendre au moins la demi journée pour faire l'intégralité de l'alhambra tranquillement ( le palais Nazrides prends environ 1h30).

    The coliseum-eque area was awesome. Somehow we went during a lull in the crowds and got some really neat shots and panos without other people. We went into the museum (thought we would have to pay but then she told us to just go in). It was okay honestly. I'd rate the coliseum area a 5, the museum within the coliseum a 3. Some neat artwork in there but it's small and you go through it really quickly.

    Muzeum pokazuje ile pracy włożono w zachowanie Alhambry i co znaleziono w trakcie prac.

    Museo de la Alhambra se encuentra en Granada. Creado en 1942 como Museo Arqueológico, pasó en 1962 a denominarse Museo Nacional de Arte Hispano-Musulmán, dependiente del Ministerio de Cultura hasta 1994, en que adquiere su actual denominación, Museo de la Alhambra, y se gestiona por el Patronato de la Alhambra y el Generalife. El Museo de la Alhambra posee la mayor colección existente de arte nazarí, fundamentalmente procedente de excavaciones y restauraciones realizadas en la misma Alhambra, por lo que su visita es un complemento ideal a la del propio monumento. Igualmente posee una selecta colección de piezas de arte islámico no nazarí, que permiten una comprensión más exacta de la evolución de este arte, tanto en la región de al-andalus como en el mundo árabe. Desde 1995, tiene instaladas sus salas de exposición en la planta baja del Palacio de Carlos

    Beautiful and free. One of the free attractions in the Alhambra if you’re European or student. The building is really beautiful and preserved.

    Très intéressant musée sur l'histoire de l'Alhambra. Ne prends pas beaucoup de temps. L'audioguide est un vrai plus.

    Édifice impressionnant, propre et vraiment très bien entretenu... La cour intérieure est splendide, on se sent vraiment à une autre époque. L'architecture est imposante... Il faut y passer pour quelques clichés.
