The Science Museum and the Zafra House are included in all 5 modalities.

All types of Granada Pernocta Card cost the same: 16 €. The card is valid for 5 days from its actual date of issue.

How much do we save by buying the Pernocta Card?

If you buy tickets for all the monuments included (Alhambra + 5 other monuments) separately, we would spend about 15-20 € more.

Opinions about Granada Pernocta Card
Hotels charge a commission
Some hotels charge a commission for selling you the card.

The Urban Dream Hotel Granada charges a commission "management fees" 10 euros per person! instead of 16 euros 26 euros.

And the entrance is not guaranteed, even if you sleep for two nights.
Official rules
There should be clear rules if the hotels can charge a fee for purchasing Pernocta Card.
This card should be provided without additional costs because the hotelier benefits from having the customer staying more days.
Deception Perocta Card
Some hotels include peocta card in special packages that greatly increases the price (they would not be 16 euros per person established).

An example would be the Hotel Saray, which offers the oveight voucher for 98.66 euros per night (when the night costs 60 euros). Therefore, hotels are not following the rules of the peocta card.
