Two friends and I stayed at an Air B&B. We had a patio and a balcony. The views from my windows were post-card perfect. The streets are lovely. We walked to the highest point and watched the sun set. There are little flowers that smell like Gardenias. The business people and residents were kind and helpful.

My wife and I walked through this amazingly decorative area as part of a larger guided tour and were happy to wander through the maze of narrow streets and to view numerous shops, restaurants and bars.

I used a tour guide, which definitely helped. I'd recommend a tour, instead of just walking down there. Absolutely beautiful views here.

This area of Granada is well worth spending days exploring. In fact, due to the small alleyways and narrow streets you may spend days in there because it is so easy to get lost in the Albaycin!
It is an extremely interesting and amazing area to explore but take good footwear because some of the surfaces are cobbled and can get a little slippy.
The Albaycin is the Moorish area of Granada and it wears it's cultural heritage on it's sleeve. There are lots of fantastic sights and quaint shops to explore - just take your time! The added bonus is that there are some great views of the Alhambra as well.

Its a free vista from the hill on the other side of the Alhambra
The small winding streets are picturesque and very quaint and very easy to get lost in !

Lovely place just walk up the hill, turn this way, that way, this way, that way and just see where you arrive at. Lovely narrow bits and wide open spaces with cafes/ restaurants up the hill. Down behind the Plaza Nueva there are some lovely narrow streets with restaurants and shops to explore too.

We loved walking around this area although it is an uphill climb and then a lot of walking down slippery slopes. This neighborhood is full of beautiful houses

Narrow winding streets filled with vendors. A fascinating way to spend a couple of hours. There are a few good restaurants there too.

We had a nice sunset view of Alhambra from a Albayzín Hilltop location. The weather was cool and breezy. The view over, was amazing where people were singing and dancing. The streets were narrow and the ambience was medieval.

Although COVID apparently altered the vibrant life of the Albayzin, my guide Asier helped me to imagine its bustling nature with small vignettes of people's challenges but requirements to preserve any antiquities in their residence and surrounding area. It was exciting to see the lengths Granada goes to to preserve its heritage.
