Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.
Book your Alhambra Ticket before: This is crucial!! The Alhambra can be sold-out and just showing up won’t do the trick. You have to prebook your Alhambra Ticket, same as Sagrada Familia in Barcelona and Colosseum in Rome.
Seriously, this happened to several travelers! Do not miss out, it is really worth it! Check out all our 7 tips for Granada.
7 local secret tips (+ what to prepare – Read this!!)
Granada is one of our favorite cities in South of Spain. The Alhambra is a magnificent building, the Albaicín simply marvelous, and the food, oh boy!
And right here: We share 7 Secret Tips Granada you won’t find anywhere else.
The historic city of Granada is unique in many ways. It is a must-visit destination when visiting the Andalusian cities of Sevilla and Córdoba. The majestic Alhambra, a Moorish citadel and palace, is watching over the city while in the background the snowy top of the Sierra Nevada appears to finish the perfect scenery of Granada.
Let us kick off with the most important task for you to prepare your trip!
1. Make your reservation for La Alhambra
It is very important to make your reservation for La Alhambra as soon as possible!
The entrance for the palace at La Alhambra is limited, and as you have might seen already, this is THE attraction in Granada.
Therefore, to make sure you can actually enter the palace, get your ticket.
It is 100% worth it to enter Alhambra, so jump to the link below and get your ticket now! You can buy your ticket here at Get Your Guide or Tiqets.com
When to visit: We would actually recommend to visit La Alhambra in the early morning when there is less people, and it is not that hot.
Also, do not miss out on the gardens of Alhambra, the Generalife. When entering and being blown away by the magnificent Alhambra, don’t forget to visit the gardens. They are a bit more “hidden”, so look for them and follow the signs. Some people missed out on them, simply because they had no idea it was worth it.
