The Albayzin is a maze of winding narrow streets reflective of its medieval moorish past. Lots of cobblestone, whitewashed buildings, and little shops and cafes to explore. It's on the hillside opposite the Alhambra, so we aimed for the Mirador de San Nicolas at the...More

Narrow lanes with some nice squares and bars and the main draw or the views of the Alhambra especially at sunset from Plaza Mirador de San Nicolas. You certainly won't be alone for this event but the view's are spectacular. Recommended

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
