GARDENS OF THE ALHAMBRA – FREE VISITS
Throughout the month of June 2018, the Board of the Alhambra and Generalife Gardens, sponsors the program of visits for the people of Granada: “The Alhambra Closer.”
To do this, Granada or people living in Granada, can go every Monday morning to the Corral del Carbón, behind the City Hall, in the center of Granada, to ask for your free entry to the Alhambra for Sunday afternoon, which also, in this month of June, includes an official guide, during a tour of two hours, discovering all the gardens of the Alhambra.
The visit begins on Sundays at 6:00 pm from the ticket offices, where the people who have reserved their visit are checked, and they are divided into small groups, to tour the flora of the Alhambra, until the closing of the monument at 8:00 pm.
The theme of the month of June is botany, discovering an evolution from the gardens of antiquity to the Hispano-Muslim garden, without forgetting to take a tour through the botanical Andalusi, citing the plants they introduce in Al-Andalus, uses medicinal plants and different crops that planted throughout the Generalife and in the gardens of the Partal.
It is a great opportunity for the people of Granada, to know this wonderful legacy much more closely. In addition, especially this year 2018 it has rained a lot and it is not hot, the gardens are beautiful, waiting to be traveled and known.
It is totally a luxury to be able to access a free entrance to the gardens of the Generalife, courtesy of the Patronage of the Alhambra, and also a luxury is to have the official professional guides, who will make you discover the gardens with different eyes.
