What you'll do

Granada is a beautiful city by day, but there's just something about how it comes alive in the evenings when the sun begins to set, lights flicker on, and locals embrace the slow yet vibrant social scene. One of the city's most historic and picturesque neighborhoods is the Albacín, a former Moorish district filled with viewpoints, quiet lanes, hidden gardens, historic sites, and lively streets.

You'll start by meeting your guide at Plaza del Salvador in front of the church, Iglesia Parroquial de Nuestro Salvador. This location places you right in the middle of the Albaicín, near the top of this hilly district, so you can slowly make your way down the twisting streets for a relaxed walk. This neighborhood, now a UNESCO World Heritage site, tells the story of Al-Andalus, the great Muslim kingdom. Granada was once its capital city in the 13th century, and the Albacín is the perfect example of preserved Moorish architecture.

As you stroll, your guide will lead you from one incredible viewpoint to another, stopping at five in total. Enjoy the views over the Arab walls that once protected the city and catch a glimpse of the Darro River, all enhanced by the evening light. You can also admire vistas of the majestic Alhambra palaces and the Sierra Nevada mountains (often snowcapped). As you walk, stop at a few historical sites, like churches built atop mosques, traditional carmenes (houses) with fragrant gardens, plazas with lingering locals, and streets lined with cafés and tea shops. You'll also dip into Sacromonte, the Albacín's neighboring district known as the land of caves and famous for its bohemian past.

At the end of your walk, you'll stop at a beloved local tavern to enjoy a drink and tapas, one per person. As you bite and sip, enjoy chatting with your local guide and continue learning about the city's unique history.
