Alhambra tickets for May?

Does anyone know when Alhambra tickets will be available for May this year? Since February it only sells for March and April, don't want to miss them.

Thank you.

I just posted the same thing on another thread. It looks like only through April so far.

Whatever the problem everyone else will be in the same position, so continue to monitor on a daily basis until they appear.

This has happened before. January 2015 tickets didn't come on stream till 3rd December 2014. Alhambra seems to be releasing tickets to Ticketmaster later and later, so you may have to wait. But keep going on Alhambra Ticketmaster site to check up.

Yup, discovered that this site is consistently inconsistent. I check it daily (several times a day), checking for May tickets. Nada as of yet!

Thank you everyone, will keep checking everyday then! :)

I wonder so many things you order online in Spain is so complicated? Renfe first, now Alhambra, I also read that does not accept Australian credit cards..

Don't know about Australian cards, but had no difficulty buying with UK cards (various sorts).

According to the website,

"Tickets for the month of May will be on sale from March 30. Tickets for the month of June will be on sale from April 20."

This is not posted on the Alhambra ticket page. I found this only by posting in the FAQ section, "When will May tickets for the Alhambra become available?" and this was the response. I'm shocked that there really was some information to offer! Personally, I'd still check regularly, but at least we have a sense of what to expect.

esj-- I also don't know about Australian credit cards, but do check on TripAdvisor as there has been a lot of discussion of what does and doesn't work.

Thanks progol…

Thanks progol, good to know, don't need to check everyday :)

I've also arranged with the owner of the apartment in Granada just in case my credit card fails she will buy tickets for me.
