Is it worth to buy the Granada Card?

museum of andalucia in granada Let's calculate how much it would cost us to use the urban buses and to see all the monuments which are included in the Granada Card if we visit them without the card:

Alhambra 14 euros + Monasterio de la Cartuja 5 euros + Catedral 5 euros + Capilla Real 4 euros + Monasterio de San Jerónimo 4 euros + Parque de las Ciencias 7 euros + Museo de Andalucía 4 euros + Abadia del Sacromonte 4 euros + 5 bus trips 4,25 euros.

Total without Granada Card: 50,25 euros. With Granada Card 37 euros.

It is worth it when you visit more than 73% of the atractions included in the pass and take 5 trips in the urban buses.

Another advantage: during high season on many days there are no tickets available for entrance to the Alhambra. However, with Granada Card you could be able to gain entry to the Alhambra.

Opinions about Granada City Pass
Excellent guidance
Excellent guidance provided by your website. Thanks a lot for understanding the problems of tourists from foreign countries (Syed).
Booking is not smooth and unnecessarily complicated
I'm very unimpressed with the websites that sell the card. They're ok for information but booking is not smooth at all. It seems unnecessarily complicated. The links to find out availability for the Alhambra with the Bono Turistico don't work. I'm going to try phoning but I live in Spain and speak Spanish. I can understand the frustration of those trying to book from abroad (Karen).
I have tried to purchase this card 5 times
I have tried to purchase this card 5 times today.. they will not take a debit card. This is ridiculous as i do not have or want a credit card!..unimpressed (Christine).
It seems like all the tickets which include Nasrid Palaces are sold out. I read it is possible to visit Alhambra and the Nasrid Palaces also having the city pass.
You visit the Alhambra and the Nasrid Palaces the same day. You specify the date and time of the visit (of the Nasrid Palaces) when you buy the Granada city pass.
I had a funeral the day I was supposed to take the bonus so I was 2 days late, arriving on a Sunday after 2pm. Nowhere was opened to get the bonus. Don't think it's fair that you don't change it but you are also close. NEVER AGAIN I will get anything in advance.
On Line Orders
I have tried to purchase tickets at Every time I try I am told I have run out of time. This is imposable! Also I get sent in circles to get to the booking page.
