Full description
Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the medieval district of Albaicin is considered Granada's most beautiful area. Follow your expert guide down cobbled streets to discover Albayzín's beautiful viewpoints and mansions.

Stroll through the maze of narrow, winding streets as you take in the aroma of jasmine that fills the neighborhood. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Alhambra and the Carmenes Gardens, and admire typical Moorish houses.

After exploring the streets of Albayzín, head to Sacromonte. Learn about the people who accompanied the Catholic monarch's troops and how they settled in this neighborhood after the town was re-conquered in the 15th century.

This tour was excellent. It doesn’t state in description but tour sizes are kept small. Our tour was a total of three people ensuring we had very personalised attention. The guide, a local, was extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer questions, share anecdotes, legends and much historical information. I went away very happy with my overview of the history and current issues facing the Albaicin and Sacromento districts. The tour included fantastic views of the Alhambra. At the end the guide happily escorted me to the starting point for my evening activity. Highly recommend this tour.

Tour guide was very informative and really interesting. Although I had wandered a little in Albacin before I got a much better idea of the place. For Sacromonte a guide is really useful otherwise you wouldn't get to know the district. I found it good value and just the right amount of time and walking. Thanks Christina!

We have done the tour with Cristina and it has been a formidable experience. His knowledge about the neighborhoods we have seen and about the history is extraordinary and his way of exposing it more extraordinary if possible. We return delighted and with a feeling of having seen everything thoroughly that we did not expect. Just great!!!! Our congratulations to you and especially to Cristina.
