You can’t get to know Granada without visiting its heart, the Albaicin quarter. Situated on a hill in front of the Alhambra the neighborhood is a magnificent viewpoint from which you can appreciate the red fortress from any of its angles. Its labyrinthine and winding streets responds to its Muslim origin by combining the typical Arab constructions, with their impeccable whitewash, with Renaissance towers. Walk its streets and soak up the smell of orange blossom and jasmine from its traditional ‘carmenes’, see the busiest squares in the neighborhood where tradition and modernity merge and let yourself be carried away by the spirit that roams the streets of this beautiful neighborhood.
Right next to the Albaicín we find the valley of Valparaíso, a natural enclave of the Sacromonte district. Flamenco and art flood each of its corners, the caves on the hill become flamenco stages and the guitars carry the rhythm of this unique neighborhood.
