How do I get to the Alhambra?
« on: November 26, 2010, 07:55:24 AM »
I was wondering about how to get to the Alhambra?
Is it best to go by bus, by taxi or even walking.

There is an excellent page here with maps of each bus route.

The Alhambra is on a hill 100 metres above Granada.
There are several ways of getting to the Alhambra ticket office.

On foot:
Walk up the Cuesta Gomerez (pedestrian only – 1,100m from Plaza Nueva)
Walk up the Cuesta de los Chinos or Cuesta del Rey Chico (pedestrian only – 720m from Plaza de los Tristes)
By bus:
Catch the  C3 or C4  minibus
By car:
Via Ronda Sur – the Granada ring road to the Alhambra carpark (map).

See maps of the 2 main minibuses here:

The Albayzin is the old part of town with whitewashed houses.
