The Gardens, spread across several terraces in the palatial area of the Generalife and protecting the palace at its highest point, offer a marvellous view of the entire site.
Tiny fountains with jets can be seen in the nearby parterres, with lovely specimens of magnolia trees, scented shrubs, and a carefully laid out selection of evergreen and deciduous trees that protect against the cold winds from the north the gardens, including a small, romantic botanical garden of the European humanist sort.
A visit to this area will highlight the visible contrast that exists within the Alhambra Historical-Artistic Monuments Complex, which brings together Medieval and Renaissance styles, both with traces of nostalgic Romanticism that can be appreciated here as perhaps nowhere else.
It is for this reason that a visit to the highest gardens is a must, following the Muslim stairway and descending the very much Europeanized terraced pergola.
The Festival of Music and Dance of Granada in 1952 provided an impetus to the building of a theatre in the historical-artistic monuments complex.
