This is a great experience. You can walk around as much or as little as you like. Get lost in the winding streets and discover beautiful doors and really old churches. Wear comfortable shoes as some streets are steep and have the original stones.
It will kill your knees, strain your muscles but also enchant your senses. Like Alhambra, if in anyway mobility impaired it is better to arrive at the top of Albayzin and slowly walk your way down rather than attempt the climb from the bottom of...More
Interesting and varied architecture, lovely views, narrow lanes to head down—all add to the charm of this barrio. Make sure you have a map to keep track of where you ramble, although the Alhambra can keep you oriented.
This beautiful and historic Moorish section of Granada is well worth the walk up and down the hillside. At every turn, there are new places to explore, new colours and new smells. The exploration is free.
Quaint streets, unexpected vistas, narrow paths, interesting eating places - all visitors to Granada need to visit the Albayzin. The best way is to take a bus to the top of the hill, and walk slowly down to the river below. Serendipity will provide wonderful...More
I am not into big crowds. Although the view of Alhambra is phenomenal from San Nicolas Church, there is constant large crowd there which is hard to find any quiet moment, not to mentionthe challenge to find a good spot of the view. Befriend with...More

It is important to get your bearings ahead of time if you are staying in Albaycin; it is a hike up and down to hail most taxis. It might be possible to call ahead but there are walkways that the taxi can't drive on so you need to find a convenient spot. There is also a shuttle that runs through Albaycin. We did have two great meals in the Albaycin area, one overlooking Alhambra at night which is breathtaking and another (Trllo)which was delicious so it isn't necessary to leave the area. We downloaded Google maps at our VRBO before we headed out so we knew how to get back to our place walking through the winding paths. Hope that helps. Wear comfortable shoes and plan to walk up and down lots.
