Alhambra TicketsAlhambra advance booking

What is Alhambra, Granada? 

Alhambra is a historical palace and fortress complex in Granada, and it's one of Spain's most popular tourist destinations. Booking tickets to Alhambra in advance is essential! Don’t miss the chance to visit this famous UNESCO World Heritage Site. Read on to learn how to book advance tickets to Alhambra.

Know before booking your Alhambra Tickets

  • Advance booking is essential, not just recommended, to secure your visit, whether it's weeks or months ahead. Buying tickets in advance ensures entry and prevents disappointment, especially for accessing the Nasrid Palaces, the highlight of Alhambra. 
  • You cannot buy tickets to Alhambra on the day of your visit, so make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment. 
  • There are three separate sections in Alhambra, the Alcazaba,  Nasrid Palaces and Generalife gardens.
  • Entry to the Nasrid Palaces is timed and dated. You must arrive on time to access the Nasrid Palaces.
  • If the Alhambra tickets are sold out you can consider buying a Granada card which includes access to Alhambra. 
  • While children under 12 enter for free, selecting a ticket for them during purchase is necessary.  Children under 3 can obtain tickets at the ticket office without prior booking.
  • Ensure you carry your passport with you as it is the only form of identification accepted. National identity cards or driver's licenses are not permitted.
  • If you have pre-purchased your tickets online, consider entering through the Gate of Justice (Puerta de la Justicia) for shorter queues and easier access to key areas like the Alcazaba, Nasrid Palaces, and Partal.

Ticket availability for Alhambra

Alhambra

Ticket Availability - High Season

As one of the most sought-after attractions in Spain with over 2.5 million visitors each year, Alhambra is extremely crowded from April to September. During this period, demand for tickets tends to exceed availability, which is why it is essential for you book in advance. Due to the limited daily capacity, tickets for guided tours, Nasrid Palaces visits, and evening sessions can sell out months in advance.  During this period you should consider alternative options such as guided tours or combo tickets.

Alhambra

Ticket Availability - Low Season

The low season at Alhambra is from October to March. During the low season tickets are relatively easier to secure. With fewer tourists visiting you have more flexibility in choosing dates and times for your visit. The low season is the perfect time to explore the Nasrid Palaces which has limited entry slots daily and is the most popular part of Alhambra. While tickets may be easier to get during the low season, it's still advisable to book in advance, especially if you have specific dates or timings in mind.

Booking tips 

  • As a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the most popular attractions in Spain, booking your Alhambra tickets in advance is highly recommended to secure your entry. 
  • Keep your entrance ticket and ID handy throughout your visit, as you'll need to show them multiple times. Consider having both the QR code on your phone and a printed paper ticket accessible, especially in case your phone battery is low. 
  • Arrive at the Nasrid Palaces entrance at least 30 minutes before your specified time slot to ensure you don't miss your entry. This allows enough time to locate the entrance and queue.
  • For visitors with limited mobility, wheelchair rentals are available at the Entrance Pavilion. Follow the disabled route signs for a comfortable visit. Please be aware that the Alcazba has uneven terrain and entry after sunset is prohibited for safety reasons.  
  • Utilize the free lockers at the Alhambra to store one medium-sized bag per person. These lockers are conveniently located near the Carlos V Palace.
  • Opt for the Gate of Justice entrance. This entrance, closer to the Alcazaba and Nasrid Palaces, typically has shorter lines than the main gate.
  • Bathroom facilities between the Alcazar and Nasrid Palaces are limited, so plan accordingly, especially if traveling with children.
  • Avoid Saturdays, public holidays, and days following a Spanish Puente (long weekend) for fewer crowds. These periods tend to be the busiest at Alhambra.

Frequently asked questions about booking your Alhambra tickets in advance

How far in advance can I purchase tickets for my visit to the Alhambra?

Tickets for the Alhambra can be purchased between two hours and four months in advance of your intended visit. Please check your chosen ticket for more details.

Where can I find the best views of the Alhambra?

As the Alhambra is perched on a hill, you can enjoy breathtaking views from various vantage points. Some of the finest views can be experienced from the watchtower in Alcazaba, the windows at Nasrid Palace, and the Generalife Palace.

Is the Alhambra accessible for wheelchair users?

Alhambra is a historic estate and as a result it has loose stones and uneven terrain. While certain areas like the Generalife gardens have been adapted to accommodate visitors with reduced mobility. The Alcazaba area may pose challenges for those with mobility issues due to difficult access and unstable terrain.

Do Alhambra tickets grant access to the Nasrid Palace?

Not all Alhambra tickets include entry to the Nasrid Palace. Visitors must specifically book tickets that allow access to this site.

What documents do I need to bring with me when I arrive at the Alhambra?

When arriving at the Alhambra with a pre-booked ticket, bring a printed copy or electronic copy of your ticket confirmation, along with your passport. Other forms of identification, including government-approved IDs from other countries, are not accepted.

What is the cancellation policy for Alhambra Palace tickets?

Cancellation policies vary depending on the ticket type. But most Alhambra tickets can't be canceled or rescheduled.

What should I do if Alhambra Palace tickets are sold out?

If the tickets you want are unavailable, consider purchasing a guided tour ticket or a Granada Card. Another option is to opt for a Night Ticket to the Nasrid Palaces and Generalife. While these alternatives may not offer the full experience, they provide viable options, with guided tours being particularly recommended.

What happens if I arrive late for my designated entry time with a pre-booked ticket?

If you arrive late for your designated entry time, you may not be allowed entry, especially for timed entry tickets such as those for the Nasrid Palaces. It is essential to arrive on time to avoid missing your allocated entry slot.
