Nice walk, interesting shops, beautiful view!

It's a little hike to get up here, but nothing too bad. when you enter from the south side you find a lot of quaint Moroccan, Moorish influenced little tourist shops.

The Albayzin is one of the oldest barrios in Granada. A visit to the Casa Nariz will give you an overview of the area and it's history. Lots of narrow winding streets, old moorish palaces and tapas bars. Wonderful views of the Alhambra on the hill opposite, lit up at night.

I assume almost 100% of the visitors to Granada are there to see the Alhambra and the attached Generalife Gardens, after all they are world famous and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. However, the World Heritage designation includes a third site in Granada and that's the old Moorish quarter of the city known as the Albayzin (or Albaicin) and there's... More

If you love writing I highly recommend that you rent a house for a weekend to enjoy the view over Granada, Alhambra, and Sierra Nevada. Views are amazingly inspiringly, keeps your mind fresh with ideas to write, very well connected to the city center by bus.

This area is the oldest part of the city and is now a world heritage site . The winding narrow streets and beautiful houses are fascinating . The views of the Alhambra are lovely as are some of the fine restaurants that overlook it . We walked up on our own and thoroughly enjoyed the up hill walk .

I decided to walk all the way to feel the charm of being in Albaycin. I felt tired but at the end of the street I found a nice courtyard with guitarist and so many people taking pictures. Just amazing

... full of architectural and historical gems, with lots of information boards around and several signed walking routes. Plenty of attractive little bars and restaurants too in out of the way places. Lovely even on a cool January day; even better later in the spring in warmer and brighter weather, as we know from previous visits. And get the bus... More

Anyone who is interested in Spanish history and the origins of Andalusia will not be disappointed. You can relate to various periods and events in books you may have read.

This area can be seen at your own pace.While it can be winding and twisting, the views are spectacular. Getting to the top of Mirador St.Nicholas is a wonderful treat.The views of the Alhambra, the Catholic Church, the Mosque and Garden are worth the climb. A must see.
