Full description
Embark on a 2-hour walking tour of the most traditional and authentic neighborhoods of Granada: Albaicin and Sacromonte. Learn the history, legends and local culture from your tour guide. Meet your guide at the Plaza Bib-Rambla and head to the former Muslim neighborhood of Albaicín, declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. From here, you will head to the Mirador de San Nicolás, where you'll take in fascinating views of the Alhambra. Marvel at the Dar Al-Horra Palace, an old Arabic palace from the 14th-century palace and follow in the footsteps of the funeral carriages that used to drive along Paseo de Los Tristes. Then, continue to the neighborhood of Sacromonte, famous for its caves where settlements of minority groups were established after the Castilian conquest. Learn the history behind the people that live in caves dug into the mountains here and witness Sacromonte's strong connection with flamenco. Visit Enrique Morente's home, one of the most influential flamenco singers from Granada. On this guided walking tour, all members of the group will be treated to a glass of wine, a custom typical in Granada.

Yocin, a Spaniard from Belgium, gave us a lot of knowledge and tips about Granada. The walk through the two districts took place in the evening hours and despite a few tourists (not nearly as many due to Covid) he kept showing us special places and viewpoints where we were almost alone. Thank you very much for an unforgettable experience! The tour was in very understandable English, with mask and distance :) Regina & Beate

All phenomenal. Javier very nice. It is a visit with many ups and downs but Javier makes many stops for us to drink and rest a bit. Everything is great. I recommend it 100%.

Totally recommended!

The visit is great and the guide Miriam very good. We explained everything perfectly, we went with an Australian girl and had no problem going to explain things about the visit in English.
