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.

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.

We stayed in this part of Granada and had a lovely time wandering the lanes so quaint, discovering little plazas with bars and / or coffee shops around nearly every corner! Great place to get tapas.
