About Albayzin, Granada

Even in small cities and towns each district has its own flavour, usually marked with its distinct inhabitants, local commerce or architecture. Famous examples include New Orleans’ French Quarter and Antwerp’s famous diamond district. Albayzin, a district in Granada, belongs on the same list as those distinguished districts; an opinion shared by UNESCO as it was declared a World Heritage Site in 1984.  Apart from being the area facing and therefore providing views of the fantastic Alhambra, its claim to fame is its rich Moorish architecture. Wander around its narrow twisting streets and gaze upon some original Moorish buildings, some dating back to the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries. It’s a place you can mingle with the locals and observe the day to day happenings. The bars and restaurants dotted around the locality provide some respite when you are tired of walking.
