Full description
Explore the old Albaicín neighborhood of Granada, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, at night on this 2-hour guided walking tour. Wander down streets less touched by conventional tourism and learn more about the history of the area with your guide. Begin your tour at the Mirador de San Cristóbal. From here, admire the view of Granada at night with the 2 Alcazabas (Moorish fortifications) in parallel (the nearest is the old Alcazaba Qadima and the other one is the Alcazaba of the Alhambra). Then, enter through non-trafficked circuits that still preserve the peaceful and tranquil atmosphere of Albaicín, also known as Albayzín. During your 3.5-kilometer (2.2-mile) walk, discover unique events such as historical conspiracies fostered by the strategic advantage of the neighborhood's location, and hear incredible stories about spies and maquis (guerrilla fighters in Francoist Spain after the Spanish Civil War).

El tiempo pasó sin darnos cuenta paseando por los callejones silenciosos del Albaicín mientras nos contaban historias y leyendas sucedidas en ellos. Fue como un viaje en el tiempo. Nos gustó muchísimo.
