Granada: Albaicin and Sacromonte Sightseeing Tour

1. Granada: Albaicin and Sacromonte Sightseeing Tour

Embark on a sightseeing adventure to the historic neighborhoods of Sacromonte and Albaicin. Meet your friendly guide in Granada then head to Albaicin, a UNESCO World Heritage Listed district that was formerly the capital of one of the most important kingdoms in Europe. The first stop of the day is El Mirador de San Cristobal, an impressive complex built in the 11th century with sprawling views across the ancient citadel of Albaicin. Continue the tour to the old fortress of Alcazaba Cadima, then cross over the Plaza de San Bartolome to reach the Mirador de San Nicolas. Perhaps the most famous viewpoint in Granada, the Mirador de San Nicolas boasts sprawling vistas of Alhambra and the snowy peaks of Sierra Nevada in the background. Arrive at Sacromonte, passing by the impressive Gran Mezquita Mayor on the way. Travel along the picturesque Cuesta del Chapiz until you reach the idyllic Paseo de los Tristes on the shore of the Darro River, which has been a place of leisure since the 16th century. Enjoy some time to soak up the view while learning about the Christian and Muslim influences on the two neighborhoods you have visited today. Next, pass through the Plaza Nueva to the final stop of the day, an imposing cathedral.

Belén has been our guide, and the truth is that we couldn't have had better luck. She has been super charming, and has answered all the questions we have asked her (and there have been quite a few). It shows when someone is prepared for the work they do, and with it, it shows and with a note!
