Become part of living history at Albayzin, the city’s old Moorish neighborhood, which was declared a World Heritage Site in 1984. Nostalgic and quaint, the area retained most of the narrow winding streets and buildings of its medieval Moorish past. Situated on a hill above the city center and offering unobstructed views of the famous Alhambra, this ancient quarter allows visitors a chance to see and explore white-washed old buildings, Arabic shops and restaurants, and scenic gardens. Dating back to the 14th century, when it thrived as a self-contained regional center, the neighborhood is now a kind of open-air museum in which you could lose yourself for days. Highlights within the area include remains of an Arab bath complex, the city’s archaeological museum, and a Catholic church built on the remains of a Moorish mosque.
