A labyrinth of old streets and lanes you must visit this area. Picturesque laneways, houses and markets. The Arabian influence is very visible here.

We stayed 2 nights in the Albayzin. Great views and loads of history. Be warned this is not an area for driving. Let the cabs take you or walk as this is a very tricky area to navigate and the cabs are very inexpensive.

Great views from the top of the hill of the city of Granada. It is worth climbing up. The narrow streets are extremely interesting as you go up to the top. A good way to spend an afternoon.
