What You Can Expect

Granada and Albaicin Walking Tour

Admire Granada Cathedral and learn about its history from your guide

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.

This was an excellent way to see the old Moorish and Christian quarters, wee streets and walkways and to find our bearings in the city. Our guide was excellent and an absolutely charming young man

It is a great tour about Granada and its history. It gives you ideas about the city other than the main attraction Alhambra. I recommend this tour for the first day of your visit at Granada.

There were only two of us joining the tour, so it was like a private tour. Stephanie, our guide was excellent- very knowledgable and enthusiastic. Would highly recommend this tour

Really good walking tour of Granada and Albaicin. It is easy to get lost in the Albaicin area, so I definitely recommend this guided tour. I was very impressed how our tour guide did the tour in two languages, but sometimes it made the tour kind of slow. But I kind of liked how we had time to explore and walk around while she talked to the spainish part out of group. She was very knowledgeable and pointed out a lot of areas that we would have overlooked or missed. She took us to all the highlights, expect St. Michael's Church view point (which is definitely worth the hike to get the sun set with the Alhambra).

The tour started at 1100, not 1000 because it is off season now. We also purchased tickets to a flamenco show and the hammam spa from this tour group agency after the tour. Because we did this walking tour we got a huge discount on everything else we booked. So, overall I'd say this tour is worth it :)
