Albaycin Granada’s ancient Muslim quarter. The origin of modern Granada, under Iberian and later Roman rule, the Albayzin owes its form to the Arab age, during which it became residence to kings and the royal court, as much during the Ziri emirate as on occasion during the Nazari age..Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1989, it is, in itself, a monument.Many different people have lived in its streets and thus have given this quarter an interesting cultural fusion.On the route through this Granada neighbourhood we will come across the churches of San Cristóbal and San Bartolomé, and their respective wells. These are not the only ones we will find; there is also the Well of San Luis and the well in the plaza del Salvador, located at the beginning of the Cuesta de Chapiz. We will also see the wells of las Tomasas and el Rey, which is the oldest in all of Granada. The Albayzin wall hails from the Nazari age. It was erected in the second half of the 14th century to defend the neighbourhoods on the San Cristóbal hill – the Albayzin and the AlbaydaIba. It runs from the Puerta de Guadix, the end of the modern day Paseo de los Tristes, passing through San Miguel Alto, the Fajalauza gateway, Postigo de San Lorenzo until reaching the Puerta de Elvira. We will also find the Casa Morisca de Yanguas and the churches of el Salvador, built in the Mudejar style in the 16th century on top of the old Mezquita Mayor, the main mosque of the Albayzin. We will finish the route with the Torreón and the Aljibe de Bibalbonud, the Mirador de San Nicolás and the Puerta de Hizna Román.Visiting the Albayzin quarter is a one-of-a-kind experience that only Granada could offer you, where every corner tells a tale of history, poetry and art… It is the only place in the world that has such impressive views of the Alhambra.
