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.
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
After the Alhambra, ride up to the top of Albayzin along the river valley to view back towards the Alhambra palaces, and the modern city of Granada spreading out below. While wandering the historic streets that wind down the hill, the culture of Granda unfolds....to...More
The narrow cobbled streets and Moorish flourishes make this a charming neighbourhood filled with a vibrant scene of food, flamenco and music in general.Spain's Islamic heritage is on display in Granada like nowhere else. Plenty of cosy alleys and small plazas, there are some quiet...More
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

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 need to find a convenient spot. There is also a shuttle that runs through Albaycin. We did have two great meals in the Albaycin area, one overlooking Alhambra at night which is breathtaking and another (Trllo)which was delicious so it isn't necessary to leave the area. We downloaded Google maps at our VRBO before we headed out so we knew how to get back to our place walking through the winding paths. Hope that helps. Wear comfortable shoes and plan to walk up and down lots.
