Description

Go on an exciting journey from Islam to Christianity, illustrating the thriving transformation of Granada; city of myth and splendor.

Come and admire the picturesque Albayzin, the old Moorish quarter which was declared a World Heritage site in 1994. Feel the charm of an area which presents the same infrastructure as it did in the Muslim period; hidden corners, winding narrow streets, Moorish houses (Carmenes), minarets, bath houses (Hammams). Find yourself transported into the medieval times when coming inside the Corral del Carbon, a former Caravanserei, merchants hostel in Granada. See the city's religious history on your visit to the Casa de Zafra. Unravel the tradition of the Moorish World. It is from the Albayzin where you can capture some of the most spectacular views onto the Alhambra, from various viewpoints. A walk along the Carrera del Darro will immerse you in the hassle of this side of the town.

The contrast between the Muslim past and the Christian present is more evident in the Historical Center. The tour takes you to the central Bib-Rambla Square, considered the heart of the town, which is located nearby the ensemble of the Cathedral and Royal Chapel. Opposite to the Chapel you'll find the Madrasa, following on to numerous alleys of the old silk market (Alcaiceria). Where
