This was an amazing area to wander and get lost in. I was meeting a friend later in the day but had several hours to walk. I turned up a road and found myself in a maze of windy streets with lovely houses, some small...More

Albayzin is well worth the gentle climb up from the city centre. With its delightful white walled buildings, narrow cobbled streets and plethora of cafes and restaurants it makes a lovely morning's adventure. And the views of the Alhambra with the snow topped Sierra Nevada...More

Be prepared to walk and climb through lovely narrow alleys but it is very worth the effort. Lovely interesting neighborhood, you can imagine yourself in the Middle East or Turkey or even Greece, with lots of small shops and tapas bars. Along the way up...More

This old hilly neighborhood with its narrow winding streets is very interesting. It is steep and also is slippery if it is raining. If you go high enough, you will reach the Mirador de San Nicolas.

The winding alleyways suddenly open up to give stunning views of the Alhambra and then you turn a corner and find little courtyards with orange trees. There are little shops with dark interiors and glowing lamps and moroccan textiles. Enjoyed a stunning flamenco performance here...More

It was a nice afternoon and it let you see and live the old Granada. Very nice scene to the Hamra from there and very nice atmosphere all around the street of Granada

This was a typical Arabic type area with places to drink mint tea and baklava which everyone should do. The key is to find a place that is authentically Arabic because some look like it but are not.

Hi, We stayed in "lower" Albayzin (Calle Elvira) and did not regret since the area offers everything what an average tourist needs in Granada - many restaurants of all kinds, close proximity to the museums and the buses to... 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
