Generalife
  • Alhambra Route - Daytime

The Generalife is located on the hill Cerro del Sol, adjacent to the Alhambra. Its name means 'garden of the architect'. Originally it was most probably an architect's house that later passed to the Arab kings and was remodelled. The Generalife is composed of a series of large gardens, where every corner holds a novelty and a pleasant surprise for the eyes, with a minimum of obtrusive buildings.
