We've been here on walking tours when visiting Granada the narrow streets are beautiful and interesting. The views at night of the Alhambra are perfection.

We strolled along winding narrow streets, stretched our arms and touched the walls of the houses on either side, lost our way but didn't regret. It's a neibourhood with a difference. Suitable for any time of the day and any mood.

We stayed for a few nights in the Albaicin area of Granada. This is the old Arab quarter with narrow sometimes steep streets although I hesitate calling them streets. They were laid out in the time when donkeys, carts and... More
