A must visit either by walking or bicycle. Nice historical buildings and full of historical facts. Beautiful old houses and good view from the top. There is a mosque on top for muslims to pray. the walk can be a bit tiring but well deserved trip, do it slowly and enjoy the view and scenary. Suggest you get a good guide.

I visited Albayzin during the night and it was an experience by itself but I suggest that people visit it during the day as well.
the narrow streets, the old houses and cafes makes you feel that you are back in time during that exceptional era of Spain's history

A typically Arabic district full of shops selling souveniers. Not many nice restaurants but interresting to be visited at night

The views are great, but it is very functional. Nothing like the palace next door. The commanding view shows how defensible the position was to invading armies.

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.
