TIME OF VISIT:

It takes at least one hour to get from the main ticket office at the Alhambra to the Nazrid Palaces. It is therefore a good idea to reserve tickets for the palaces from 10:00 onwards. If you buy tickets for the palaces at 8:30 or 9:00 in the morning, you will have to go directly to the palaces. In this case, rather than going to the main ticket office entrance, you should go through the Puerta de la Justicia entrance (see Alhambra map).

This famous quotation by Francisco de Icaza can be found in the Alcazaba and loosely translated means: "Give him alms, woman, for there is nothing sadder in life than being blind in Granada".
