About the neighbourhood
The house lies in a pedestrian street the heart of the historical Albayzín quarter of Granada. From there all mayor sites in Granada (Alhambra, Generalife, Cathedral, Royal Chapel, etc.) are within walking distance. Public transport and taxi stands are available at Plaza Nueva at 5 min walking distance. Since the private traffic is restricted in the historic city center, the use of public transport, taxi and underground car parks is highly recommend. The cobble stone pavement advises not to make use of high heel shoes.
Getting around
The house lies in the historic Albayzín quarter of Granada that is recognized by UNESCO as Heritage of Mankind together with the Arabic Alhambra and Generalife palaces and gardens. You should also see the Cathedral, Royal Chapel, Charterhouse, the interactive Science Museum, etc. Don't miss the food and try the famous tapas. You might also want to visit Sierra Nevada, the Alpujarra Valley, the tropical coast, the troglodyte cave quarter of Guadix, ... Don't worry, there is enough to see and enjoy for everybody in and around Granada.
