  • The second entrance to the Alhambra. You can enter into the fortress of bypassing the main entrance (and the crowds) to go away in the vicinity of the Palace of the Nasrid dynasty. Version for people who have purchased a ticket to the Palace for the first possible date.

  • Is the door where they placed the judges to dictate their sentences. Is one of the ancient main entrances of the Alhambra. On the outer arc represents a hand: the five fingers symbolize the five pillars of islam (belief in one God, prayer, fasting, Almsgiving and the pilgrimage to Mecca).

  • It was a long uphill climb but definitely worth it. Beautiful right from the start and all the way through.
  • Door to the palace, which is in no terms really special if you don´t know a story behind it. For example, curved hallway which is made in that way in order to be harder for enemy to enter there. Or a hand on top of it, and key bellow where a legend says that when the hand grabs the key there will be an apocalipse, and the whole world will disappear.
  • Worth the climb if you want to visit the museum of Alhambra which is free but check opening times since the museum is closed on the afternoon on particular weekdays.
  • The largest gate in the walls of the Alhambra known as the Puerta de la Explanada.

  • It is said that one who would be able to touch the symbol of the hand would open to the treasures of the Alhambra. You can see it free and has a special charm.
