Albaicín

Recommended
This district, which is quite typical of the town, bears the name of the hill on which it is situated and is a preferred viewpoint over the Alhambra. There the first Arab fortress in Granada was built. Today only the walls remain. Narrow streets interspersed with small pretty squares climb the hill lined with wealthy villas the carmens. Make this visit on foot to grasp all the charm of this Arab origin district.
