NIGHT visits to the Nasrid Palaces and the Generalife will open up to visitors this week.

With the lifting of curfew, the Managing Board of the Council of the Alhambra and the Generalife has announced that from May 11, visitors will be able to discover the incredible Alhambra of Granada, illuminated by night.

The night visits will run from Tuesdays to Saturdays, from 10pm to 11.30pm, and permit visitors to explore the stunning architecture and decor of the 14th century palace in a magical and different atmosphere.

Night visits for the cultural and tourist itinerary of the Dobla de Oro (Golden Doubloon) will also be resumed.

The Dobla de Oro is a tourism route which links the Albayzin and the Alhambra and seeks to strengthen links between the city’s oldest neighbourhood and the Alhambra group of monuments, both declared World Heritage sites by UNESCO since 1994.

Those choosing the Dobla de Oro will enjoy a stroll through six Hispano-Muslim monuments in the Albayzin and Christian Granada.

The Alhambra is currently operating at 65% capacity and its opening hours are from 08.30 to 20.00 every day.

Group visits are up to 10 people maximum, including the monitor or official guide, and face masks are mandatory.
