Full description
Travel by Granada’s official tourist train to the hearth of the Albayzín, where you’ll begin a guided walking tour back to the quarter’s Moorish roots, wandering through a labyrinth of narrow streets.

In the Sacromonte quarter, you’ll learn that the gypsies, who arrived with the Catholic monarchs after the re-conquest of Granada, established their home here. Visit one of the typical house caves where they lived.

Take the rest of the day to discover Granada on the hop-on-hop-off Granada City Tour train with your 1-day ticket. The train features a panoramic roof, open deck in summer, and on-board audio guides in 12 languages (and special kids’ channels in Spanish and English).
