Best Time to Visit
The Alhambra Palace is open throughout the year, except the 25th of December and the 1st of January. If you’re wondering which is the best time to visit the Alhambra, here’s a useful breakdown:
- Time of day: If you're visiting during the winter, you'll have more time to visit Alhambra if you come in the morning. Visit during the afternoon in you're making the trip in the spring, summer or fall months to get the most out of your visit.
- Day of the week: Anytime during the weekend is pretty crowded and you’ll be waiting in queue for some time. To avoid this, visit the Alhambra during a weekday if possible.
- Best time of the year: The months of spring and summer make for the best times to visit the Alhambra. The flowers are in full bloom during these seasons and you can also take a few hours of respite from the Mediterranean sun inside the fortress.
