Is it Worth Buying the Granada Card?

Let's calculate how much it would cost us to travel on the city buses and see all the monuments included in the Granada Card if we visit them without the card.

: total without Granada Card 62 €, with Granada Card 40 €.

Granada Card 72 h
: total without Granada Card 69 €. With Granada Card 43 €.

It is worth buying the tourist pass if you are going to visit more than 65% of the monuments included and use Granada city buses several times.

Another advantage is that you can get tickets to the Alhambra with the Granada Card when there are no tickets left on the official website.

Entrance to the Alhambra with Granada Card is not guided. If you would like to discover the Alhambra with local expert guide, separately without the Card, the best way is to book Alhambra Guided Tour.

The Granada City Card can be purchased from 1 day to 3 months in advance. You can buy the Granada Card only in advance at: entradas.granadatur.com.

  • Make sure you check the opening hours of the monuments. Some of them don't open on Sunday afternoon and Mondays.

Opinions about Granada City Card
Many advantages, some disadvantages
I am happy to have acquired Granada City Card, I did not have to worry about getting the tickets separately: the Alhambra, the Cathedral, Royal Chapel, several monasteries, etc., they were all included.

Advantages: good quality/price ratio. Disadvantages: lack of information and you have to visit most of the monuments included to take advantage of this card.
Good value for money
I decided to buy the Granada Card because it included the entrance to the Alhambra, otherwise I would not have been able to buy it.

I think it's very practical and good value for money as it includes entrances to many other monuments.
