Interesting neighborhood across from the Alhambra with a Moorish feel. Lots of North African restaurants and shops. Narrow streets with lots of hills and views of the Alhambra in the distance.

The place is exotic and full of the arab architecture reminiscent of the more than 700 years of their occupation, very good transportation in small buses, big buses can't get through the very narrow streets, excellent experience
