For sure, if you’re planning to visit Granada, you have included in your route al least half a day to visit the marvelous Alhambra of Granada, including the Nazari Palaces, the Alcazaba and its great gardens. Inside the architectural complex there are many other buildings (don’t forget tha La Alhambra was a walled city, so it’s quite big) as well as ideal spaces to take a rest and appreciate the gorgeus views of the city.

An interesting space to visit is the Museum of the Alhambra, that is located inside the Palace of Charles V, a building that stands out for the rest for its renacentist style facade and its circular courtyard. There, in the west wing of the ground floor ypu will find the 7 rooms that integrate the Museum of theAlhambra in Granada.

Even being located in a privilege location, many tourists don’t include this museum in its route in La Alhambra. However, if you have enough time, we suggest you to take at least 30 minutes to admire the pieces exhibited at the museum. The permanet collection has elements of the Hispanic-Muslim culture, like ceramic art, marble sculptures, mats, wooden pieces and more.
