Wonderful sight seeing over to the Alhambra.

Great character of windy cobbled streets and wonderful small squares with views over to the Alhambra. Great hidden restaurants among its beautiful houses.

Narrow streets with lot of teterías (tea house) or tabernas. In higher ground, there are wonderful views of the Alhambra.

We came in though the gate and walked through the narrow streets, cobbled stones, stores, cafes, restaurants and a park at the top. It is all up hill and lots of stairs but def worth the effort

Small, narrow streets going in all directions. Try to get away from the crowd, and dear to get lost. Well worth a visit since it's a bit different. It reminds me of Lisbon.

Cobbled narrow streets, beautiful building with flower pots hanging from the windows, Albayzin is simply lovely. It's a bit hilly but totally worth it.

I traveled to the top and it was thoroughly enjoyable walking down. You can't really get lost if you simply head down. The buildings are very old, well used, and look a bit like ruins. It is truly like an old town. I didn't see all that many signs of Islaam, except in a few shops. I was also directed... More

A lot of narrow streets in a mainly residential area where restaurants flocks towards the panoramic viewpoints over the Alhambra. A rather small area so it is easy to explore a bit.

A lovely place to wander - the more windy & hilly the cobbled streets are, the more interesting the place is (I reckon!). Lots of restaurants, tapas bars & bakery for a quick bite on your way up to the Mirador de San Nicolas.

Markets are typical of many the world over and most shops sell the same items (the lamps and a few other items are lovely but you can find the rest just about anywhere). We walked along the very difficult and uncomfortable cobble/rocky streets, dodging traffic and almost missed the market area. Had no idea where we were going. Id recommend... More

The main area in Granada. Lots of shopping areas and restaurants in abundance. Easy access to public transport and sightseeing places.
