  • Marvel at the city views from various points in the neighborhood
  • Experience the enchanting atmosphere of the area’s narrow cobblestoned streets
Full description
The Albaicín is the oldest and most charismatic quarter of the city of Granada, and is located on a hill opposite the Alhambra. It was designed when Granada was ruled by the Arabs, who created a narrow cobblestoned maze of streets in the area, interspersed with small squares. The flower-bedecked balconies, stunning views of the Alhambra and the splashing of waters of the fountains create a romantic and enchanted atmosphere. What lies behind the white walls of this neighborhood, however, remains a mystery to many. You are invited to come along and solve this mystery on a 2.5-hour guided visit to the Islamic monuments of the Albaicin.

like the guide and tour but....

But about the first tour we did of the Alhambra, the offer on the website is slightly misleading as it didn't say that the Nazaries Palace was not included. On the Albaicin tour it also said includes the Nasrid Palace ... We booked the two tours to make sure we would see the Nazaries Palace, which in the end we never saw. We tried to book from here in Granada but of course it was too late and fully booked :(

Wir hatten mit Eduardo einen wirklich engagierten Guide, welcher uns mit großem Elan und viel liebe für Details das Viertel gezeigt hat. Gesehen haben wir das maurische Bad und zwei ehemalige maurische Paläste.
