GRA Torre de las InfantasThe Tourism Board for the Alhambra & Generalife has opened up a section of the monument hitherto closed to the public.

During this month only, you will be able to visit the legendary Torre de las Infantas, which figured in Washington Irving’s Tales of Alhambra; the tower where the three princesses, Zayda, Zorayda and Zorahayda were imprisoned.

The said tower is located on the eastern ramparts, between the Tower of the Captive (Torre de la Cautiva) and the Tower of the End of the Street (Torre del Cabo de la Carrera). Without doubt La Torre de Las Infantas, which was built in the mid 14th Century, is one of the most emblematic towers belonging to this world-famous monument.

You can visit the tower on Tuesdys, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays as part of the entrance ticket for Alhambra General y Alhambra Jardines.

The last time that the tower was open to the general public was October 2018 on a similary visiting timetable; i.e., during one month and on certain days.
