All reviews narrow streets fascinating area white houses arab quarter tapas every corner mirador san nicolas great views of the alhambra walk around nice walk plaza nueva walking shoes walking tour wear comfortable shoes alhambra palace neighborhood maze
we walked abt 15-20mins from plaza nueva to albayzin.typical narrow cobblestoned streets.very steep inclines.great quads workout.when we reached the top, you would be rewarded with a great city view n alhambra.
We went there twice. First we took the little bus (nr. 32) from Plaza Nueva and walked down. Second times we walked up and back. Second time we walked around Plaza Larga which is
really interesting place in Albayzin with plenty little restaurants.
The Albayzin is the original settlement of Granada. It is a maze of steep cobblestone streets. We thoroughly enjoyed an entire afternoon just wandering and admiring the unique doorways, street signs and flower pots. Do not miss the plaza at San. Nicholas as this affords...More
Albayzin is on the small mountain right across Alhambra. The village and its white houses are very cute. Some house owners make extra efforts to decorate. Most roads are quite narrow. Better be on flats.
We learned from the tour guide that most restaurants offer...More
It is a wonderful experience to wander round the Albaicin for an afternoon. There is something new around every turn, and there is not too many people. You can walk up high and leave the houses into the countryside, or just stay and explore.
What a great thing to take the bus nr C34 up the hills and walk down. You can se the beautiful Alhambra and the mountains on the hills and listen to the sound of Granada there. Nice walk down and also to end in the...More
A maze of alleys with something new to see at every turn, just wouldn't spend too long wondering about in here as You'd get lost easily and it can be unnerving finding yourself down some small alley with no one else there! I was told...More
A cultural gem in Granada. It’s an amazing place to wander. Around every corner there is something new to see. The winding narrow paths are set amid gorgeous old buildings. There is lots of activity with buskers, restaurants and shops. So many shops - you...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.
