Definitely worth walking up through this very old neighbourhood to make it to the Mirador de San Nicolas for a beautiful view of the Alhambra with the Sierra Nevada mountains as a backdrop.

Really enjoyed feeling the old fashioned cobblestone life of this area. Highly recommend for authentic Moorish Spanish experience. The only challenge is driving. If you stay there, book a place that has dedicated parking.

Get yourself lost in the labyrinth, narrow streets of Albayzin. Very interesting place to visit situated on a steep hill. It is the medieval quarters of moorish era which has retained its architectural features over centuries. Some of the houses have been changed into hotels and restaurants. Coming down the hill, you can easily get lost in the meandering streets. Mirador San Nicolas offers excellent views of Alhambra palace. In the evening buskers entertain you on their guitar. Buses regularly ply on the route along with a tourist train.

Very nice to walk around but it's hilly with lots of steps so people with limited mobility might find it difficult.

A very typical old quarter of the city. It includes some nice shopping streets (Moroccan) with Moroccan tee houses.
