Strolling with us around the Arab old quarter is the most exciting way to visit Granada, getting lost through the streets, alleys and corners of the Albaycin whichs still retains its characteristic labyrinthine. A neighborhood where visitors can “touch the past”. White houses, narrow stoned streets flowers and cipresses, moorish Walls, renaissance palaces, all together bellow the omnipresence of the Alhambra.
Albayzin is a truly ancient settlement, dating from Roman times (although nothing remains visible from that period). It was here that the Zirid court was established in the 1000s, within the encircling citadel wall (some sections of that wall are still standing), and the Moorish community grew here too and expanded controlling great part of Spain.
It was the fall of Cordoba to the Christians in 1236 which led to the centralisation of Moorish control in Granada, the construction of the Nasrid palaces of the Alhambra, and the quarter of Albayzin reaches its peak.
