Neighbourhood
“The Albaicín is the oldest quarter of the Spanish city of Granada. It is located on one of three mountain ranges in the area between the hills of San Cristobal, Elvira and Sacromonte as well as the elevation on which the Alhambra is situated. Most of the buildings are a testimony from the time of Moorish settlement. Some of the remains of the walls date back to the Roman and Iberian era. From Albaicín you can see the Alhambra. The sight is especially at sunset an unforgettable beautiful show. The Alhambra is a 740-meter long Burganlage and a world-famous testimony of Islamic art. There you find a lot good tapas bars.”

Route
“This iconic street has great nightlife if you are interested in going out. Hit the streets around 10 PM for food and then the clubs open between 12 - 3 AM or 3 AM to sunrise, where you will find live music and dancing. Remember, the buses stop running at 11:30 PM, so you will have to take a taxi back to La Chana (between 7-10 EUR). ”
