Great walking tour of Albaycin with Nacho

We went on a free walking tour of the Albaycin in Granada with Nacho, our tour guide who was extremely passionate about his city and its history. He embraced and shared both the good and not so good aspects of their heritage. It was one of the best walking tours I have taken.
