The Albayzín, declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1994, has charm and history. Known for its narrow and winding streets, it is the soul of Granada's Arab and Jewish past.

It is a monumental complex with carmenes, squares, alleys, viewpoints "Miradores", houses and churches that will allow you to walk through whitewashed streets to admire the local, Islamic, Baroque and Renaissance art.

Staying in is like being in a small town inside Granada city centre, with a unique artistic, bohemian, and creative ambience.

It rises on a hill facing the Alhambra and San Nicolás´ viewpoint offering an unobstructed view of it and Sierra Nevada, a must site just 10 minutes from home.

The Alhambra, built in the 9th Century, is an impressive complex that includes palaces decorated with bizarre Islamic patterns, floral ornaments, colourful mosaics, ceramic tiles, carved patterns on wood and stone.

Includes a fortress, towers, a church, courtyards and gardens with fragrant orange trees, cypress alleys and flowering flower. All around you can see fountains, water cascades, canals, and ponds surrounded by the perfume of the flowers and the murmuring of the water.

Currently the Alhambra hosts three museums: Alhambra Museum, Museum of Fine Arts and Museum of Ángel Barrios (grenadine composer and guitarist).

At the feet of the Alhambra, on its southeaster side, there is the Realejo.

When the Arabs came to the city (8th Century), they called it Garnata al-Yahud (Granada of the Jews) and when the Christians took the city (15th Century), they expelled the Arabs, took the city, destroyed the neighbourhood and renamed it Realejo.


El Sacromonte is the old gypsy neighbourhood, located on the eastern side of the Albayzín, with beautiful landscapes and Alhambra views that can be seen through the slopes and bends, passing by the gypsy white houses and caves.

Since ancient times, the “zambras”, celebrated parties with the sound of the clapping hands and guitars, singing and dancing flamenco. Do not miss the essence of a night of “duende” enjoying a flamenco show in a picturesque cave.
