Another World Heritage site in Granada. Our guide described it as a middle class district but I would say it was more working class. As it has been for centuries; it originally was home to the workers who supported the Alhambra. Ancient buildings with beautifully decorated facades in narrow crooked streets. It is on a hill adjacent to the Alhambra... More

Stayed in an apartment for just 1 night prior to a visit to Alhambra. Fascinating area with lots of history. Loved the colourful bazaar and was spoilt for choice with lots of tapas bars and restaurants. Stroll through little cobbled alleyways and discover pretty little plazas or grand buildings. As time was short we took the mini train to tour... More

It is my favourite part of Granada. Fantastic view on the city and Alhambra, plus unique narrow streets and plazas on the inside.

Soak in the grandeur of Granada here in Albaicin, where small white cottages dominate the surroundings and serve to tower over the more modern city center. Getting around maybe tricky due to winding roads, cobblestone steps and uphill climbs, but any healthy person on foot can definitely manage. Driving on your own might be a bit challenging given the narrow... More

I was walking with three children and I had to watch the road all the time as they were a loth of dog's poo. It was quite dirty in all streets. I wonder whey don't they keep it clean. So I kept saying don't step on the poo!!! The streets are very characteristic. The road where there are all the... More

We spent several hours walking through this neighborhood. There were signs indicating the historical sites and that was helpful. We ditched the This.Is.Granada audio tour which was frustrating to use. There was no particular route that we took although we did want to see the overlook with the views of the Alhambra. We went in the afternoon (before sunset) and... More

We stayed in the Albayzin neighborhood while visiting Granada. It's narrow labyrinthine streets, small whitewashed houses and carmens, the street markets reminiscent of Morocco, its quaint tea bars and amazing restaurants all make it a special place. You have amazing views of Alhambra and the city of Granada from various viewpoints. Great place to discover by yourself or take a... More

Great area to walk around, grab a nice tea, enjoy some excellent Morrocan food and buy all kinds of unique for the area souvenirs. The area is a mix of market, small winding streets with historic buildings and when you make it to the top, a great view of Alhambra
