Full description
Take an unforgettable walk through the knotted streets of the oldest city quarter of Granada, Albaicin. Feel the spirit of the past and find out about the medieval Moorish influence in the local architecture, cuisine, and culture. The Albaicin quarter was inhabited by the peasants of the last Moorish kingdom in western Europe. Learn about their strict daily routine of trade, hygiene, praying, and education, and the high level of development all of these aspects achieved during your tour.

After meeting with your tour guide, your tour will begin by exploring Plaza de San Nicolas. This most popular look-out point of the city offers splendid views over the biggest tourist attraction of the city, the Alhambra.
