HISTORY OF THE ALBAICÍN DISTRICT

Old quarter of the city of Granada, the Albaicín is a neighborhood with a Muslim medina structure, with steep streets, full of private houses with lovely gardens, dominated by interior spaces, and maintaining the privacy of its inhabitants.

Classified as a World Heritage Site by Unesco, it has managed to maintain that medieval aroma in its urban structure.

It is a delight to walk through its streets, visit its squares, and discover its countless viewpoints, of which we must highlight the most famous, Mirador de San Nicolás, which is in front of a church of the same name. The views from this point are fabulous, highlighting in the background the palatine city of the Alhambra, the gardens of the Generalife, and, between them, the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada. In addition, we enjoyed some views of the white neighborhood, with its houses-cármenes, its convents and churches, and a view of the historic center, with the Cathedral as backdrop, in addition to the Vega de Granada and some villages in the metropolitan area.

Come with us to this neighborhood of enchantment and mystery, we will accompany you on a journey into the past, discovering and touring, streets, squares and viewpoints, with a multitude of curiosities and details.

An unforgettable visit that should not be missed.
