Are you planning a trip to Granada and wondering if you can bring your pet along? You'll be glad to know that pets are allowed in two of its elevators, with no additional cost. You can also take a trip on the Borreguiles cable car and the Veleta II chairlift, although only to restricted areas. If you're bringing a small dog, here's some advice on the best ticket or tour for you. The Alhambra staff and past visitors recommend that you arrive with your pet properly insured.
All dogs should come with a properly adjusted collar and leash, while cats should be in suitable carriers. Large bags or backpacks are not allowed in the Alhambra Complex, but there is a cloakroom where you can pick them up at the main entrance. The Alhambra is one of the world's most impressive architectural feats, and it's also a window into Spain's distant past. It houses the Alhambra Museum (which is free to visit) and the Museum of Fine Arts of Granada, although you can enter the palace without visiting either of them.
If you're in a hurry, you can order a taxi, although taxis aren't as common in Granada as in some cities. When visiting Granada, there are many other attractions to explore. These include the church of Santa María, the Parador de Granada hotel (which has an on-site restaurant and is located in the 15th century convent of San Francisco), and the Fuente de Carlos V. The elevation of Granada means that it's not as hot as in places like Seville and Córdoba, but it's best to avoid visiting it during the summer if possible, especially in July and August.
Granada limits the number of tickets that can be sold for the Alhambra each day, as well as limiting the number of visitors to the Nasrid palaces within half an hour. After exploring all that Granada has to offer, you'll leave with sore feet but with a happy mind (and hundreds of photos). If you and your pet feel comfortable, you can enter the lobby to register your pet for the delivery appointment. We haven't done it ourselves, but many people have said that while the environment is charming, it's very dark and losing access to the views during the day isn't worth it for a first visit.
