It is a sweet little town with narrow streets to get lost in. There is of cause lots of tourisme here and therfor sailsmen of bags, watches etc... But if you find the right place you can enjoy the quite pace of the town.

Fantastic views, atmosphere in this historic area. Small bars and restaurants dotted around some with amazing views of the Alhambra and the Serra Nevada, just stunning. However be warned steep cobbled street walking and imagine it would be very hot in the summer months as...More

This part of Granada has fantastic atmosphere. We were lucky to stay in an apartment here with a roof terrace and an incredible view of The Alhambra. The streets of the Albayzin are very narrow and winding. It is easy to get lost but that...More

Great, historic place to put the GPS away and wander around for an hour or two and see what you discover.

A great, very old part of Granada. Easy to get lost in this maze of tiny streets. Lots of nice tea houses, cafes, restaurants.

it is visually appealing and should be visited in my opinion to have a better idea of how the city used to look once

The narrow winding streets open up to give unexpected glimpses of the Alhambra or Granada and the surrounding mountains. Plenty of places to eat and drink. If you see a building site try to get a look in - any excavation reveals real archaeology!

Small streets, nice buildings although all of them restored, Albayzin provides the colors and feeling of another era.

There were eight of us on our last visit and had a fantastic guide. T/P +34655574373 and ask for Mirian. Reputable company but don’t think you’ll get the whole show for 6 euros, you’re trying to live the dream. Pay the fair... More
