Puerta de las Granadas (The Gate of Granada) is situated 150m from our door on Cuesta de Gomerez. Built on the "Bib al – Buxan" or "Puerta de las Alegras Nuevas", it is the entrance to the Alhambra complex and acted as a defensive tower for one of the cities' entrances. On the old Barranco de la Sabika between the hills of the Alhambra and el Mauror it is the gate of the walled complex between the Torre de la Vela and Torres Bermejas, and its natural access from the city.
If you continue walking up the hill you will soon reach the ticket office for the Narid palaces and the rest of the monuments. Minibuses that go to the Alhambra stop 100 meters from the hotel in Plaza Isabel la Catolica.
