The history of Spain, Europe and the world itself has passed through Granada, having in the Albayzín one of its most symbolic places, metaphor and synthesis of the vicissitudes of the humanity during the last 9 centuries. Columbus’ voyage to the Americas, the Journey of Jewish people through Europe, the interaction between the West and the East, the complexity of a society that has been multicultural since its origins.
All this finds in the narrow streets of the Albayzín a privileged place for being told, observed, lived. With its labyrinth made of little houses, the secret gardens of the “Cármenes”, the cave-houses cradle of the Grenadian Flamenco and the gourgeous views to the Alhambra, the Albayzín and the Sacromonte will trap you with the magic of those places that have no equal in the World.
This tour includes:
Plaza Nueva — Caldererías — Lower Albayzin and "Mudéjar" houses — "Zirí" City walls — Plaza Larga — "Cármenes": Gardens of Granada — Moorish houses — Panoramic views of Alhambra — The importance of water and wells — Arab baths

When in Granada I took two free walking tours, one of the Sacromonte area and one of the city centre, and they were both led by the sweet and knowledgable Anna. She took us around her wonderful town…
