Winding cobblestones alleys and interesting historical anecdotes make this.place a good visiting option. The view of the town from here is breathtaking.

Old residential area fascinating sites, centuries old homes and twisting hilly streets that are cobbled and mosaic-ed.

... .in the twisty streets of Albayzin, the old moorish area. Up a steep hill with dozens of streets and walkways, there are several very fine restaurants and tapas bars. This is a world away from the busy and noisy city center.

Albayzin is an interesting area in Granada to explored on foot. The former Muslim quarter is full of exotic alleyways. Walking around the Moorish houses is like a trip to the Moorish Spain.

Consists of old winding Moorish streets cluttered with shops selling all kinds of things. Great for photography and people watching. Off the beaten path in Granada, and well worth the exploration. Go get lost!

pretty standard wares for sale in the retail areas but we did see some gorgeous buildings and more wooden structures than expected. Nice private gardens.

We were only in Granada for a few days so only got to see this area briefly. It was certainly deserving of more attention. The little we saw was fascinating and very pretty. Sadly it was also raining at the time so that hindered us...More

Hi It is important to get your bearings ahead of time if you are staying in Albaycin; it is a hike up and down to hail most taxis. It might be possible to call ahead but there are walkways that the taxi can't drive on so you... More
