Full description
The old Albaicín neighbourhood of Granada is bigger that it really looks, and to get to know it in depth it is necessary to divide it into several areas of interest. During this itinerary, you will get to know Albaicín Bajo, visiting the interiors of Cármenes (traditional houses in Granada) and Palaciegas Houses. To know a home and even a whole neighbourhood you have to start with the history that its walls hide. These historic houses come from the Arab period, but they were adapted over time to the needs and interests of different tenants. During this tour, you will visit gardens and archaeological discoveries - for instance, you will go inside a Cármen to see an image painted at the end of the Spanish dictatorship. In addition, you will have a walk through old palatial Castilian houses, whose walls conceal events from their past, including historical events inside these spaces that changed the entire destiny of the city. This is without a doubt a different way to discover this part of the Albaicín.
