“Totally worth exploring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We spent two afternoons walking around the Albayzin...The right streets to explore are the ones that call to you...Just about every street is small and winding, and unlike anything you can see in the USA. We ate a huge delicious lunch for 11 euros at a small local cerveceria, and did some shopping in a local artist's store.

“Historic area with lots of character”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

After our meal at the excellent 'Las Estrellas de San Nicolas' we walked down the hill through the historic Moorish area of Granada called the Albayzin...which was an excellent end to the evening as the area is full of small bars and restaurants full of people enjoying themselves and the atmosphere was amazing. There are all sorts of restaurants from traditional Spanish to Moroccan and one restaurant even had a flamenco dancer! We'd definitely go back!

The most beautiful neighbourhood of Granada, the arabic quarter. Many panoramic views of the Alhambra. Don´t miss the view from Mirador San Nicolas.

“not to miss out...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

..when you are in Granada. Join the walking tour of Elisa, she shows you the nice corners of Albayzin and gives you a nice historical and archilogical background. Go in the afternoon to see the sunset!

“Wonderful but even better at night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We went for tea and hubbly bubbly then found great tapas and wonderful culture, not to be missed. During the day it is interesting to wander through the streets but at night it becomes truly alive. Better when the weathers a little warmer but still a great experience.
