The Generalife was the country estate of the king of Granada. Located only a walk away from the main residence, it is located just outside the northern fortifications of the Alhambra. When the king felt the need to get away from the life at court, he could retreat here to relax and reflect.

The gardens of the Generalife separate the country house from the Palace and Alcazaba. The garden shown above is actually the patio in the country house (Summer Palace). The photo above was taken in October. For the same view in June click here.

Most of the photographs on this page were taken in early November.

If you head up to the hill to the right (towards the upper gardens) you will find the "waterfall" stairway. The "Escalera del Agua" has water cascading down its handrails.
