Great hike with exceptional views. I hiked this with my daughter on my back (19 kilos). I would rate as strenuous in my situation, but not hard. The back half of the hike is mostly along a gravel road with nice views to some high peaks to the south, as well as some glaciers and waterfalls.

We didn't expect there would be a mini hike to get to the tourist area but the short trail had a view great view of the city.

Awesome treck with a lot of snow from the bottom to the top ;) so be prepared !

It's a very nice trail but in my experience it deserves to be in the medium category. It's called kid friendly but I will strongly advice against taking kids younger than 14-15 years along on this hike.

I explored southern Spain in early-November, driving from Madrid, after an epic pilgrimage walking the Camino de Santiago (plug for the Camino: it was one of the best -- if not the best -- experiences of my life). Alhambra became one of my highlights of Spain too, particularly since its Moorish architecture was a first for me. I took a tour that included a shuttle bus pick-up at the fountain square in Granada, but walked back to the city via the route shown here after touring Alhambra and Generalife. Alhambra is one of those precious gems of the world. I was entranced by the tiled patterns and left wanting to craft something earthy with my hands, inspired by the artisanal decorations throughout. In short: it's a definite must while visiting Spain. A couple things I would have done differently, knowing what I know now: 1) use Seville as my home base (instead of staying a night in Granada; I much prefer Seville, especially Barrio Santa Cruz) and take one of the many day-tours from Seville to Alhambra, and 2) visit Alcazar of Seville before Alhambra (their architecture are similar, but Alhambra blows Alcazar away. Since I saw Alhambra first, Alcazar was a bit disappointing).

Very interesting architecture. Very popular.
