Bus to Alhambra

The metropolitan (urban) bus numbers 5, 33 and 21 go from the bus staion to different parts of the city.  if you want to catch the bus to the Alhambra you will need to take three buses so probably best to take a taxi at least to Plaza Isabel Catholica.  If not walk 3 mins to Sol y Sombra, take bus N4 to Cruz del Sur, then bus LAC from Cruz de Sur to Marqués de Falces. Walk down Gran Via to Plaza Isabel Catholica. From here take C3 or C4 up to Alhambra. Allow an hour to hour and a half for the journey plus the time to collect Alhambra tickets and walk down to the palace entrance.

An alternative is to take the metro (tram) outside bus station (single 1.55€ day ticket 4.50€ purchased on the metro station) to Recogidas. Walk up calle Recogidas to to Plaza Isabel Catholica. From here take C3 or C4 up to Alhambra.
