Opinions about Alhambra Opening Hours and Tickets
Heat stroke from standing at the entrance
My husband and I have heat stroke from standing for 30+minutes at the entrance to the Palaces at the Alhambra yesterday. We had hats and water but there was no shade for most of the Queuing.

At such an important site, a UNESCO site, to erect a temporary shade arcade along the queuing area is something you should consider for visitors health.
