We stayed one night at a B&B in Albayzin. Although it was rainy, we enjoyed a lot walking through the labyrintic web of narrow streets, actually it was even more romantic with the rain and a classic style umbrella borrowed from the reception. We went...More

A very relaxing way to spend a full afternoon pottering the streets, having a few drinks plus (free) tapas. Beautiful old houses. Worth the ascent to the top as well for the view from Mirador De Sant Nicolas over to the Alhambra. I'd recommend doing...More

This is a great area to explore and learn about the moorish history, it is also the best place to come and get city views and the best pictures of the Alhambra.

Old neighbourhood with narrow winding streets stretching from the Plaza Nueva to the hills parallel to the Alhambra. Steep in many places, and like wandering through a maze. Very interesting, lots of older buildings and plazas to visit with good cafes and restaurants. A great...More

This maze of little streets across the valley from the Alhambra is full of interest to explore. Plenty of little bars and restaurants. The streets are steep and narrow so keep your wits about you. There is a good bus service up to the top...More

This was a beautiful outlook with many excellent views. This was my second favorite next to the Alhambra. One word of caution for those with small children. There are many heights with rails where a child can slip through. There are also many steep stairs...More
