“Twisty & turny, but be careful.”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Very wonderful place to visit in the morning to get lost and wander and get a great picture of the Alhambra from the opposing hill. I can't stress enough how confusing these streets are, even with a detailed map. Muggings and petty theft still prevail in this area, so be wary when you visit - try to avoid the siesta time where not many people are around and the evening.

“The view is the best”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

It is part of Alhambra visit.
It offers a view of Granada that would fascinate you.
You have to be there and take panoramic pictures.

“Full of character and history.”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Some of the narrow alleyways can look dull and uninteresting during the day but fill with life and colour in the evening when shops and bars open.
Well worth a walk to the top of the hill. Good exercise and the views of the Alhambra are great.
Want a drink? All of the bars we drank in served free tapas in generous portions with every round of drinks.

“Simply A Must”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

There are 2 obligatory things to do in Granada if you only have one day...The Alhambra/Generalife and after a tapas & a siesta, a walk around the Albaicin. If you have time, you should also go the Abadia in Sacromonte, a fascinating magical place where 3 religions collide.
