In the ascent towards the Albayzín alto, we will pass by the house of the cantaor from Granada Enrique Morente, who was born between these streets and in addition, we will make a beautiful stop in the viewpoint of Carvajales. It is quite hidden and goes unnoticed among many visitors, but it is worth it, as the perspective it offers of the Alhambra and the Generalife is shocking.
We will continue snaking this World Heritage district, between streets that twist and twist non-stop, to reach its summit, to the most famous view among all travelers and neighbors of the neighborhood, the Mirador de San Nicolas.
In our tour we will feel that past and present are mixed here, in this unique and authentic neighborhood of the capital of Granada where it is normal to see people shopping, older women returning home with meat, fish and fruit, some gypsies singing with their guitar to the rhythm of a few palms or a family of tourists trying for the first time the taste of breakfast bread with oil and tomato on a terrace.
Bill Clinton said that this neighborhood had the most beautiful sunset he had ever seen, and not for nothing, because the reddish tones that the sky acquires when it sets on the plain of Granada, make the snow of Sierra Nevada turn pink.
The Albayzín is a different world, where time does not pass. It is that place where you can get lost and find yourself, where you can discover the beauty of so much history, from the magic and purity of its nooks and crannies. It is that place where everybody is welcome, where a balanced harmony of aromas, sounds, lights and shadows reigns, a sweet memory that does not let you go and will surely leave you… with a lot of desire to return.
