Albayzin, Granada

(4.6/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Let the streets you wrap and you guide aimlessly. Lose yourself and imagine how the life would be hundreds of years ago by these narrow, cobbled streets. Worth it, at any time.
