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...More
an old medieval town with long winding streets and narrow cobble lanes, One has to be a very good driver to manoeuvre about those narrow streets , many of which are just wide enough for one car to pass by with pedestrians pressed against the...More
The beautiful meandering streets with historical monuments depicting the fantastic and rich islamic culture and architecture at its best. A definitely must to walk through the cobblestoned streets and visit the mosques. Unfortunately the opening timings of the cathedrals are dependent on the caretakers availability...More
The best way to know and enjoy the Albayzin is to walk through its streets and even get lost, look for a seat and sit down to have a beer that always comes with "una tapa", talk to those around you, these people are friendly,...More
Rented an appartment in the Albayzin and loved it. Easy to walk into the centre of Granada but lots of restaurants within easy reach. Great views from the Miradors - we loved exploring the cobbled streets.
We visited this area while ona Segway tour as this is the best way to do it or else you would be so tired as it is uphill.
We had fun going through the narrow streets and discovering this area of Gitanos.

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 Mirador San Nicolas which has amazing views of the Alhambra but it is up a steep hill with many steps. Again, you can catch another little red bus. Go to the lovegranada website for more info. Hope this helps.
