Excellent walk up mountainside.

Quite a climb to the top but wonderful views of the hillside with gypsy caves in view. Great lookout point with music and entertainment by gypsies and craftspeople.

Walking through the narrow passage ways was a real exercise for the body and mind. There are a lot of steps and up climb so be prepared to walk and huff and puff. Exercise the mind by getting lost in the zigzagging streets, then try to find your way out! This old part of town definitely was serene and beautiful.... More

A visit to the Albayzin is a must whilst in Granada. We wandered around on our own, just soaking up the atmosphere and then went back another day with a guide who was able to tell us about the amazing history. A great place to people watch too! Visit the mosque gardens to get fantastic views.

In lucky enough to spend 6 months of every year living just 100 km from the Albayzin and I spend quite a lot of time there for a variety of reasons. 1) I love history and walking through this ancient place is like walking through a living museum. 2) I love photography and here there is just so much to...

This is an area across from the Alhambra that is full of cobblestone alleyways and old white houses. It gives you a real feeling of Moorish life starting from the thirteenth century.

My friends and me are students of University of Granada and we visited that wonderful neighborhood with our guide, Verónica. She explained us interesting things about Granada and we could see amazing view of the city.

Hilly with narrow streets and an old middle eastern bazaar. Busy and bright with great views of the Alhambra from the top. Close to our hotel and near the C1 bus line. This entire area has a special feel. Take your time.

This is a wonderful area to get lost in. Make sure that you -sometime during your Granada visit- take time to wander and get lost in this charming winding labyrinth of the narrowest of streets and lanes.
