If you are looking for some interesting things to do in Granada, we suggest you to visit the charming neighbourhood of the Albaicín in Granada. Located in the top of the city, is a neighbourhood with narrow and winding streets that invite you to get lost in them. Here you will find some of the key elements of the tourism in Granada, such as: The churches of St. Bartolome, St. Cristobal and St. Salvador; the old wells or cisterns, that are still operatives: the spectacular wall of Granada built in the Nazari style, and many other things,  all of them scent on the delicate hints of the jasmines, that you can smell when there is a sof breeze blowing over the Albaicin

You cannot miss the “carmenes” that are the tradicional houses of the neighbourhood: an isolated house, bounded with walls, and with amazing gardens between the house and the wall. Luckily, there are some carmenes at Albaicin that have been transformed into bars and you can sit there to get a drink.

And if you want to see great views over the city, from the Albaicin of Granada you’ll see some of the better ones. Just go to the St. Nicolas belvedere or the St. Cristobal belvedere and you will see it!. Or go to the small square at Paseo de los Tristes to admire the Alhambra. Honestly, one of the most impressive thing you can do is to watch the sunset over Granada from the Albaicin… definetely, a thing to remember!
