Great to see the views from here, completes the day. We had a guided tour which gave us lots of information about the area. We were lucky with the weather. The cobbled streets could be tricky in the wet.

Albayzin is the maze of curved streets with many intersections, stairways, little or larger squares. It's easy to get lost there, it can be a very tiring ramble, a long stroll forward and back, climbing up and down... Despite that, the walk for pleasure, without...More
