Albayzin and Sacromonte Guided Walking Tour in Granada

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in central Granada, and set off into UNESCO-protected Albayzín, one of the city’s most historical quarters.

    Covering a hill facing the Alhambra Palace, this quaint neighbourhood forms Granada’s medieval heart, and consists of old Moorish and Andalucian buildings clustered around labyrinthine cobbled streets.

    Learn about Albayzín’s 11th-century roots, and meander through the picturesque lanes to admire the whitewashed houses with their flower-filled balconies, as well as churches, squares, and fountains. Pass landmarks like the old city gates and other Moorish remnants, and drink in panoramic views of the Alhambra atop the neighboring hill.

    Next, continue to the Sacromonte district to the east of Albayzín. This fascinating quarter is home to Granada’s Roma gypsies, who first arrived here in the 15th century, and is famed for its underground, rock-cut homes.

    Follow the cobbled path around the hillside, and see some of the traditional caves where gypsies and others still live. Many are now flamenco bars and tiny museums that showcase the traditional lifestyles, arts, and handicrafts of the original cave dwellers.

    Admire the city views from here, and after 2.5 hours’ exploring, bid goodbye to your guide, bringing your tour to a close.

    Excellent guide and tour. We had the evening tour with a splendid sunset looking over Granada. For those with any physical problems it is a bit hard.

    As with most tours, it is the guide who makes or breaks the tour. Ours was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and fun. We walked for almost 3 hours covering these 2 fascinating areas.
