One of the best experiences I have when going to Granada is exploring the labyrinth streets of the Albayzin. Here you will feel as if you stepped back in time. You will find places to have amazing Arab pastries, delicious fusion tapas, vegan and vegetarian...More

We had a great morning exploring the narrow streets and squares in this historic area. The lower streets are mostly walls of houses. On the higher levels the squares and views are lovely. Enjoyed the visit more than I expected.

We went there twice. First we took the little bus (nr. 32) from Plaza Nueva and walked down. Second times we walked up and back. Second time we walked around Plaza Larga which is really interesting place in Albayzin with plenty little restaurants.

The Albayzin is the original settlement of Granada. It is a maze of steep cobblestone streets. We thoroughly enjoyed an entire afternoon just wandering and admiring the unique doorways, street signs and flower pots. Do not miss the plaza at San. Nicholas as this affords...More

Albayzin is on the small mountain right across Alhambra. The village and its white houses are very cute. Some house owners make extra efforts to decorate. Most roads are quite narrow. Better be on flats. We learned from the tour guide that most restaurants offer...More

Hi It is important to get your bearings ahead of time if you are staying in Albaycin; it is a hike up and down to hail most taxis. It might be possible to call ahead but there are walkways that the taxi can't drive on so you... More
