Alhambra, Generalife and Albayzín — Granada, Spain

From the UNESCO description:“Rising above the modern lower town, pills cialis the Alhambra and the Albaycín, for sale situated on two adjacent hills, form the medieval part of Granada. To the east of the Alhambra fortress and residence are the magnificent gardens of the Generalife, the former rural residence of the emirs who ruled this part of Spain in the 13th and 14th centuries. The residential district of the Albaycín is a rich repository of Moorish vernacular architecture, into which the traditional Andalusian architecture blends harmoniously.”

If you go: Be sure to buy your tickets as far in advance as you can. Visitors are allowed into the Alhambra Palace in half-hour intervals based on the reservation time stamped on their tickets. And the ticket takers are very strict about this. Trip Advisor has instructions on how to get tickets. Be sure to give yourself at least a full day to see the Alhambra, Generallife and Albayzín. We split our visit over two half days.
