The quarter of Albayzín is a synthesis of all the cultures that have occupied its streets, squares, and houses. From Muslims to Christians and Jewish people, without missing romantic artists and writers who found inspiration in the narrow alleys of this quarter, all of them have contributed to give its unique charm to Albaycín. Here, Moorish houses, the traditional gardens of the 'carmenes', old mosques converted into churches and arab palaces coexist with artisan workshops, traditional bars, family businesses and magical viewpoints.
