The whole area is a world heritage site, with beautiful Moorish architecture. Wear comfy shoes and go in a morning while it's cool.

After visiting the Alhambra the day before, it was great to view it from this hillside. Dont miss making a visit here - fantastic views of the amazing city and Alhambra fortress - makes you realise how imposing it was back in the day.

Just wander the winding streets & cobblestones-wear good shoes. Pick up items you'd usually never buy in stores. Have fun

We booked a restaurant for dinner because from the restaurant we can see the lighted Alhambra in the evening. It took us a while to walk there. But very quiet and very Arabic style. Beautiful narrow streets.

Get a guided tour first then wander. Brilliant , just brilliant mix of closely arranged streets, with hidden gems of plazas around corners, beautiful houses or carmens littered throughout, several streets which reflect the Moorish history of the area, shops, tapas bars and tea rooms...More

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
