Granada: Albaicín in the Dark Walking Tour

1. Granada: Albaicín in the Dark Walking Tour

Explore the old Albaicín neighborhood of Granada, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, at night on this 2-hour guided walking tour. Wander down streets less touched by conventional tourism and learn more about the history of the area with your guide. Begin your tour at the Mirador de San Cristóbal. From here, admire the view of Granada at night with the 2 Alcazabas (Moorish fortifications) in parallel (the nearest is the old Alcazaba Qadima and the other one is the Alcazaba of the Alhambra). Then, enter through non-trafficked circuits that still preserve the peaceful and tranquil atmosphere of Albaicín, also known as Albayzín. During your 3.5-kilometer (2.2-mile) walk, discover unique events such as historical conspiracies fostered by the strategic advantage of the neighborhood's location, and hear incredible stories about spies and maquis (guerrilla fighters in Francoist Spain after the Spanish Civil War).

The Albaicín From Inside: Cármenes and Palaces To Discover

2. The Albaicín From Inside: Cármenes and Palaces To Discover

The old Albaicín neighbourhood of Granada is bigger that it really looks, and to get to know it in depth it is necessary to divide it into several areas of interest. During this itinerary, you will get to know Albaicín Bajo, visiting the interiors of Cármenes (traditional houses in Granada) and Palaciegas Houses. To know a home and even a whole neighbourhood you have to start with the history that its walls hide. These historic houses come from the Arab period, but they were adapted over time to the needs and interests of different tenants. During this tour, you will visit gardens and archaeological discoveries - for instance, you will go inside a Cármen to see an image painted at the end of the Spanish dictatorship. In addition, you will have a walk through old palatial Castilian houses, whose walls conceal events from their past, including historical events inside these spaces that changed the entire destiny of the city. This is without a doubt a different way to discover this part of the Albaicín.
