Granada is a city with a special charm. Its history, culture, and gastronomy make it a first-class tourist destination. But if two places define it, those are Albaycín and Sacromonte. Discover its essence thanks to this Albaycín & Sacromonte guided tour.

Firstly, the Albaycín is the oldest neighborhood in Granada. A labyrinth of narrow, steep streets, with white houses and views of the Alhambra will transport you to another era. In this neighborhood, you will find some of the most emblematic monuments of Granada, such as the Mosque, or Church of San Nicolás.

So, Albaycín is a historic neighborhood located on the slope of the hill of the same name. It is a place of narrow streets, white houses, and patios full of flowers. Here you can find countless historical monuments, such as the Alcazaba, the Great Mosque and the Church of San Nicolás.

After, Sacromonte is a neighborhood located on the slope of Albaycín hill. It is a place known for its caves, where gypsies once lived. Today, these caves have been converted into zambras and flamenco tablaos, where you can enjoy performances by the best flamenco artists.

But without a doubt, what stands out most about these two neighborhoods are their numerous and impressive viewpoints, the “miradores”. Corners full of magic and charm in which the Alhambra watches majestically in front of us.

Moreover, a guided tour of Albaycín and Sacromonte is an unforgettable experience. It is a trip to the heart of Granada, where you can discover its history, its culture and its art.

Therefore, if you are planning a trip to Granada, do not miss the opportunity to visit the Albaicín and Sacromonte. These two neighborhoods will offer you a unique experience that will transport you to the past and allow you to learn about the history, culture and flamenco of Granada.

Albaycín & Sacromonte Guided Tour

Granada is a city with a special charm. Its history, culture, and gastronomy make it a first-class tourist destination. But if two neighborhoods define it, those are Albaycín and Sacromonte, two places that offer a unique experience that is worth visiting.

Description

Dare to travel back in time with this Albaycín & Sacromonte guided tour, where expert guides will share with you how these neighborhoods have achieved that status while maintaining the essence that characterizes them.

The Albaicín is the oldest neighborhood in Granada, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is located on the hill in front of the Alhambra and appears to us as a labyrinth of narrow and steep streets, with white houses and patios full of flowers. Its views of the Alhambra will transport you to another era. Furthermore, in this neighborhood, you will find some of the most emblematic monuments of Granada, such as the Great Mosque, or the Church of San Nicolás.

Like any good Arab neighborhood, along the route, you will find that the connecting link is water: aljibes, fountains and canals, with which to take advantage and conduct this element.

Sacromonte is a neighborhood that is located next to the Albaicín. A place famous for its caves, which have been inhabited by gypsies for centuries. Nowadays, these caves have been converted into zambras and flamenco tablaos, where you can enjoy this striking and vivid art.

But without a doubt, what stands out most about these two neighborhoods are their numerous and impressive viewpoints, the miradores. Corners full of magic and charm in which the Alhambra watches majestically in front of us.

A visit to the Albaicín and Sacromonte is an unforgettable experience. It is a trip to the heart of Granada, where you can discover its history, culture and art.

Therefore, if you are planning a trip to Granada, do not miss the opportunity to visit the Albaicín and Sacromonte. These two neighborhoods will offer you a unique experience that will transport you to the past and allow you to learn about the history, culture and flamenco of Granada.

We booked the Small Group to Alpejurra tour. The tour is a great value and well worth the money and the time. It was a very long and full day. We learned much about the area, visited beautiful mountain towns, tasted local foods, and enjoyed mountain vistas. Our guide, Gonzalo, was a pleasure and fun to spend the day with. He communicated well in English. Highly recommended.

I desperately needed tickets to the Alhambra and they were booked out weeks before my trip : ( I could only get tickets to the Genaralife but not Nasrid Palaces. All the planing and expense for my trip to Granada would have been in vain if not for the help of Lilly. We ended up getting the Granada card with guided tour of Alhambra for 2. It was a lot more than I had intended to spend as I had not wanted a tour. However I was so incredibly happy that I went with Discovering Spain. We saved so much by going with them directly rather than an online company. Our guide Jesus is an art historian with so much of passion, talent and knowledge. He gave so much colour and depth to our tour. He was patient and interested in what we wanted to do. He went at our pace (my Mum is 71), and tailor’s the tour to your interests, and was a real gentleman. Lilly was super helpful with local tips and a very prompt and good communicator. What I like most about Lilly was that she was so helpful and professional and didn’t try to sell me something I didn’t want or need. We did end up making pretty good use of the Granada Card and the Alhambra tour was the most memorable experience my Mum and I have had in the longest time. Thank you both Lilly and Jesus, you guys helped make our Granada trip incredible.
