Alhambra for People with Disabilities - Access Routes and Tickets
At the moment visitors with reduced mobility can only see about 50% of the Alhambra, since the rest is not accessible yet.
A good way to get to know Granada and its history is by taking a tour. There are several interesting free and private tours offered by Civitatis:
Free Tour of Granada: What better way to get to know the hisotric centre of Granada than on a free walking tour with a local expert guide?!
Private Tour of Granada: Discover the hidden treasures and secrets of Granada exclusively just for you and your partner, friends, or family.
Gradually the Patronato of the Alhambra is introducing measures so that people with reduced mobility could access about 70% of the monument. It is estimated that people with disabilities would need help of others to access at least 30% of the Alhambra.
The remaining 10-20% will never be accessible because these parts of the Alhambra have stairs, abrupt level changes, etc...
Unfortunately, this includes some of the most interesting parts of the monument: the Alcazaba tower and the interior of the Nasrid palaces.
You can see which parts of the Alhambra are not accessible for people with disabilities looking at this map.

Opinions about Alhambra for People with Disabilities
Most places with no wheelchair accessAccessibility in the Alhambra needs a lot of improvements; most places are uneven o with the stairs with no wheelchair access. Disappointing experience. I was not allowed enter any of the palaces. Also customer service has to be improved. Regarding prices: I think it should be free, in Italy I didn't have to pay any entry at all.
