I've booked tickets to visit the Alhambra in Granada. During the booking process, I had to supply the passport numbers of everyone visiting. However, my passport will have expired by the time I intend to visit, so I will have a new passport with a different number. Will this cause me any problems when being admitted to the Alhambra, as my passport number is printed on my entrance ticket.

    Alhambra is not an airline, it is a main sight.

    @Willeke is correct, I was asking about getting into the historic attraction, not about flying. I can see how my wording might have been ambiguous. Mar 9, 2020 at 11:45

    If you are really concerned why not take the old one with you to show them?

    Just take the old passport. This is done so you can't (for example) sell tickets - they aren't going to care if the relevant passport is expired.

I visited the Alhambra on two different days in October 2019, and they checked the passports of almost nobody. I witnessed perhaps 50 interactions with customers showing tickets as I waited in various entry lines, and only once did they ask a visitor for their passport. I don't know what triggered the passport check for this particular customer, but he passed without issue.
