One of the best places to be in Granada. The old town with narrow streets and nice views on the Alhambra (San Nicola mirador but not only). In Feb17 it was quite empty of its inhabitants and therefore a bit sad. Should be better in Spring!

Having visited North Africa, wandering round Albayzin took me back to souks of Tangiers, Marrakech and Tunisia. Although many of the shops seem all to be selling the same things, there are plenty of individual ones to keep it interesting.

There is the arab quarters, you can see this white-city from alhambra, but take a chance to roam around, its worth your time. and view of alhambra from albayzin at night is spectacular.

Albayzin is worth a three-four hour walk - it offers the visitor narrow cobble streets, awesome white houses and very relaxed atmosphere. The terrace in front of the church of St. Nicolas provides a nice view of Alhambra. If you don't want to climb the hill by foot, the most energy- and cost-efficient way to get there is to take...

.We got a taxi here from the Alhambra (7 euros) and found a restaurant overlooking the Alambra and city. Very pleasant place to sit for a while

Take a few hours for this wonderful old quarter. It has nice little terraces with cheap but tasty tapas. It has squares with gorgeous views over the city and the Sierra Nevada. It has little squares with nice cafés where you can either bask in the sun or hide underneath an umbrella from the summer heat. Walk its streets, enjoy... More

Such a great place for unexpected views and sweet balconies laden with flowers. Watch your feet for dog pooh though, it's everywhere and the pebbles are slippy after rain. Head uphill to get the view of the Alhambra, preferably from a cafe rather than with the crowds at the top - you can still hear the music and feel the... More

We walked up through the streets which are narrow and winding without really knowing how to get to the main square as very little guidance available. Luckily a local gentleman guided us to the St Nicholas Square. The area in February on a cold get day felt a bit threatening, sure it would be better in summer on a warn... More
