“Fascinating miriad of streets”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

This is the old area of Granada borderekd on one side by the river and the hill of the Alhambra. You need to go off the main street to find small alleys with courtyards and local shops and restaurants. From the summit, you will find stunning views of the Alhambra - don't miss an evening visit.

“Lovely and charming neighborhood stroll”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

This is a very nice place, just in downtown Granada. The ambiance, and the shops, views of the Alhambra and neighboring mountains make it a very special place. It is highly recommended, beautiful charming place to have dinner and enjoy the night.

“A maize of narrow streets”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

Albayzin is the Moorish neighborhood of Granada. Walk he hills and streets to Plaza San Nicolas for the best views of Alhambra. Shop in the bazaar-like store fronts for a full range of goods. Don't forget to negotiate. 20% is the standard discount for this that haggle. Try to get more! It's part of the experience.

Reviewed June 13, 2014

We got lost quite a bit in the labyrinth of streets that is the Albayzin. The views were amazing though!
