El Albaicín

Albaicín

AlbaicínLocation:
Climbing up the hill north of Plaza Nueva will bring you into the rambling labyrinth of the Albaicín's streets.

In a nutshell:
The only part of Granada's Islamic neighborhoods to escape the reconquista torchings and "remodelings," Granada's traditional Islamic quarter- the Albaicín- remains just as captivating and atmospheric as it was hundreds of years ago. No wonder it has been named a World Heritage Site!
