Albayzin and Sacromonte Walking Tour

with Gaby

Video Verified

The labyrinthine Albayzin is one of the oldest district in Europe still standing, and is also almost a self-contained town in itself, whose popular intimate and welcoming character has been preserved for over a thousand years.
The Albayzin is near to the most emblematic neighborhood of Granada, The Sacromonte, where the gypsies used to live. Their most known legacy, albeit only a part of their rich culture, is the Flamenco: dances and songs that are traditionally shown in caves called Zambras.
We will meet both districts, The Albayzin with its medieval walls and churches, convents, palaces. . . and of course the Mirador de St. Nicholas, and its famous view in front of the Alhambra and the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Along the walkway-viewpont we can see those homes that have been fascinating travelers for around two centuries: the cave- houses of Sacromonte, where the Granada gypsies settled in the 18th century.

I am going to pick you up at your hotel and we are going to the Albaizyn district by foot and there we will able yo enjoy a lovely view of Granada.
We will continue our visit through the mythical district to Sacromonte.
We are finishing our tour in "Zambra Maria La Canastera", then we are returning to your hotel or to the city city center.

Please Note:
The Flamenco's Show in "Tablao Jardines de Zoraya" (20 euros with a drink per person), is optional, we can visit Albaicin and Sacromonte without seeing any show.
The Flamenco Show starts at 8 PM.
The Flamenco ticktes are "extras", you should pay it after the show.

I am Gabriela and I am very proud of this beautiful city and happy to share my knowledge with travelers from around the world. I love Granada and Andalucia, the ancient history and mythology of its cities and towns, its changing landscape, full of mountains, forests and streams. All provinces of Andalucia have singularities that make them unique and special, but for me among all there is no other like GRANADA for the sinuosity of its narrow streets and neighborhoods, the majestic and almost heavenly presence of the Sierra Nevada, the sensual magic of his lush nights. Granada is not just a historical city where sightseeing. The fact of being a town with an important University gives it a youthful spirit that fills anyone who visits. There is no day that I can't get excited when I walk through the streets and suddenly, unexpectedly the Alhambra appears, the fortress of the talking walls and singing waters, one of the monuments with more soul in the world, whose rough stone keeps in its most sublime inner beauty. And what I like most is that I can share these feelings and engage with all those who always want new experiences and thus enrich their restless spirits. My over 10 years experience leading mostly private tours has shown me that nowadays travelers aren't just looking forward to see the sights, but they also want to approach the city they are visiting in a more personable way. So I have learned to be a mix of the traditional tourguide that knows everything about the city history and sites, and a local expert that can also show you other things not strictly-touristy. I Studied and trained to receive my degree in Tourism in 1993. As your private tour guide, I'm flexible and adapt to your schedule, activities and meeting place . Please let me know about any special request you have. Granada inherited the charm of Al-Andalus, come and enjoy your visit without missing a thing! ALL THE ALHAMBRA TICKETS ARE INCLUDES IN PRICE!!!! All you need are comfortable shoes and I'll take care of the rest. . . EASY Full profile Leave a Review
