This is a touristy area, but a great place to feel the "vibe" in Granada. Beautiful winding streets and lots of little stores with souvenirs and restaurants to stop in and enjoy the area. There are also a lot of hotels here, so it can...More

Take a walk through the Albaycin area, the oldest part of Granada. We took a leisurely walk through the Albaycin neighborhood, the last bastion of Islam in Spain. We explored the intriguing maze of narrow streets with whitewashed houses and patio gardens of bygone Moorish...More

Other than the long troop up here (which you should forgo and take a taxi) it was worth it for the view overlooking the Alhambra-especially at night when it is all lit up. There are multiple restaurants in this location but you should make a...More

We saw the Albayzin through a free walking tour of Granada. It's a lively, fun neighborhood with lots of twisty little streets, and the best way to see it is on foot.

Just wander through the streets and enjoy the feeling of going back in time. Great views of the Alhambra from the Plaza de San Nicolas.

it is only the old quarters of the city adn roads are steep and narrow, but it is charming, day or night. probably best to take a taxi up, or a bus, and walk down - even better to book your accomodation there

The gypsy area across the Alhambra. Narrow streets and beautiful little houses. Eclipsed by the palace but with its own charm. Home of the "Flamenco", book a trip to see authentic dancing in the caves.

DSpent 2 whole days wandering round this fantastic area of Granada. Many paths are very steep including flights of steps mid street but regular glimpses of the Alhambra from a variety of angles made it worth while. Numerous spectacular miradores provided places to sit and...More

I recommend following the signs to the Alhambra and parking there. You can walk down to Plaza de Santa Ana which is the start of Albaicin. Alternatively you can catch the little red bus that costs 1€. You can walk up to... More
