  • If we are located in the Puerta de Elvira, we shall find in front of one of the most emblematic gates of entry to the Citadel, if we pay a little attention and imagination, will see its ancient wall, run in parallel to this cost, there are missing pieces, but throughout it, until you reach the long square of the Albaicin, accompany us on our ascent. According to evidence, is in this tour, where there is most of the best preserved ancient wall and free standing all Granada. On your left in the direction of the ascent, we observe cottages which still jealously keep their style and beautiful past, linked in their revolts and narrow streets with its paving with stones and boulders. The slope itself, it is not too long to say, but if it is a respectable inclination, i.e. the ascent we will make it as "old to get up as young". We recommend a comfortable shoes, because then touch you stroll through the neighborhood, that Yes, don't forget to reach the mirador de "San Nicolás"; unmatched.

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.
