Great views of the Alhambra, there are several squares with restaurants where you can stop for tapas along the way to san nicolas. Lots of history here, I would recommend the Free walking tours to get all the history from a guide.

There are lots of steep alleyways to explore and beautiful gardens to find in these streets. The restaurants provide an amazing backdrop in which to propose with their help in some places. Worth exploring.

Walking through the streets took us back to Morocco with all of the shops filling the streets. We walked to the Mirador San Nicolas which has a beautiful view of the city and Alhambra.

We stayed for a few nights in the Albaicin area of Granada. This is the old Arab quarter with narrow sometimes steep streets although I hesitate calling them streets. They were laid out in the time when donkeys, carts and... More
