Granada and Albaicin Walking Tour
Tour description provided by Viator
Discover historical Granada, the Andalusian city that was born from a blend of cultures, on this comprehensive 2-hour walking tour. Stroll around the city’s old yet animated center, seeing lively cafés and bars scattered around Renaissance monuments like Granada Cathedral and Moorish landmarks like Alcaicería – the city’s old silk market. Walk to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Albaicin and soak up unforgettable views of the rose-tinged Alhambra palace complex on the adjacent hill.
Meet your friendly guide near Bib Rambla Square (Plaza Bib Rambla) and then set off on a walking tour around Granada’s historic center. Difficult to define, the area loosely stretches around Bib Rambla Square and the lower part of the Albaicin quarter.
While strolling around this charming neighborhood, your guide will keep you entertained with stories of the city’s history and its reputation as a melting pot of cultural influences. See Granada Cathedral, a masterpiece of Spanish Renaissance; and visit Alcaicería, the city’s Moorish silk market that was restored after a 19th-century fire. Hear about the city’s time under Nasrid rule when Granada was one of the richest cities in Europe, and learn about its Catholic and Muslim eras.
Next, walk up the hill to discover more of the highlights of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed neighborhood of Albaicin. High up on a hill adjacent to the Alhambra palace complex, Albaicin is famous for its incredible views over the Darro Valley. With your guide, head over to a beautiful vantage point to enjoy the views and then stroll through the maze of narrow cobblestone streets. Then, make your way back down the hill to Bib Rambla Square where your tour finishes.
