“special”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

One can just feel the history of centuries of different cultures inhabiting different parts of these beautiful, white-washed buidlings and narrow cobbled streets. A real pleasure on a Segway.

It amazes me to see some great graffiti on centuries old walls, but nothing on the neighbouring newly-painted white walls. Its like the artists all want their works to be on something permanent and unpainted.

Watching for pickpockets at the lookouts at night is worthwhile.

“picturesque”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

narrow and very tortuous streets, nice small squares with good and cosy tapas bars in the shade. Wear good walking shoes and a good map, because it's difficult to find the streets names or other direction indications.

“Don't miss”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Don't let the guidebooks and the narrow alleys scare you. The Albayzin is not to be missed in Grenada. It's like another world, and like probably 1000 worlds that still exist in the Middle East and probably existed for 1000 years. The food we had was among the best in Spain (wish I could remember the name of the restaurant). The Alhambra wasn't the only reason to go to Grenada, the Albayzin is also worth some time.

“A walk in history”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Granada's historic Moorish quarter, winding little streets and footpaths, topical shops and restaurants. Well worth a stroll around.
