The Albaycín is one of the most important landmarks of Granada’s identity. The neighbourhood is perched on a lofty hill facing the red hill of the Alhambra. Its streets are winding, narrow and elusive; its squares are luminous, secluded and intimate; the palaces, mansions and churches are brimming with history and art.

In the Albaycín there are many cármenes, which are houses with gardens, typical of Granada, and Mudejar towers. The viewpoints of San Nicolás and San Cristóbal offer magnificent views of Granada and the Alhambra. The remains of mosques, minarets, Hispano-Muslim cisterns and, above all, a very Andalusian flavour and a taste of daily life, bustling and cheerful.

And the squares of Porras, Cristo de las Azucenas and San Miguel Bajo transport the visitor through the nostalgia of an era, now far away in time.
