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.

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.

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

Hi 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... More
