  • The Aljibe del Rey is a special attraction but interesting, because water management has always been important in an area with a warm climate like that. Inside is an ancient cistern of the eleventh century (the largest of Arab cisterns with three hundred cubic meters) and was made a "visitor centre" newsy. Guided and free.

  • Fantastic location, in the heart of the Albayzin. It's the hub of Muslim culture in Granada, since this revolved around the water, and the Carmen of the Aljibe del Rey is the epicenter of the wells that irrigated Granada. Although we arrived a quarter of an hour after the time of visit (12:00 h), they were very gracious and let us finish the visit with the rest of the group. With a guide exceptional, friendly and has shown his great knowledge in the matter. A little known and frequented by tourists, place that is certainly worthwhile.

  • After realising we needed to ring the bell to get in just after noon we entered into a well laid out set of displays and nice garden. However the highlight has to be descending into the aljibe itself ...  more »

Where to stay in Granada

Granada is built in a valley looking up to the majestic Alhambra, and most visitors choose to stay where the view can be admired. Plaza Nueva, just down the hill from the Alhambra entry gates, constitutes the touristic center of the city. Many of the famous free-tapas bars and lively restaurants line this famous plaza, as well as a number of small hotels and apartment rentals. Found directly behind the plaza are the city's two historical old Moorish quarters, Albayzín and El Sacramonte, which are characterized by their narrow winding streets and picturesque whitewashed buildings. Here you'll find a number of charming hotels with hillside views of the Alhambra and city center.
