The Alhambra is a hangover from Spain's Islamic era and the Palcios Nazaiers is allegedly one of the finest Islamic structures in Europe. You have to pre-book tickets a couple of months in advance as there are very few tickets available on the day. The tickets give you a half hour time slot to get into the Palcios Nazaiers, and this is the way in …

... Granada was one of the last bastions of Islam before Queen Isabella and King Fernando kicked out the Muslims and Jews out of Spain in the 1490s and early 1500s. In our neighborhood, you can still see Moorish architectural flourishes and occasionally old metal gates with a Star of David.

    Amazing location just up the road from the Alhambra ticket office. The hotel does a good buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the swimming pool is good place to cool off. The check-in staff were very helpful and provided information on buses and Alhambra. The only criticism that I have was that we had to unplug the fridge to find an electrical socket that we could use. Free Wi-Fi available in the lobby.
