GRANADA: ALBAICIN & SACROMONTE

 

Declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1984, the Albayzin retains the architecture, old winding streets and flavour of its Medieval Moorish past. Its stunning views of the Alhambra with the Sierra Nevada mountain rage in the background, are world famous, and many tourists come here to enjoy the spectacular sunset from the church of San Nicolas, which USA ex-president Bill Clinton, having studied in Granada himself, named as the most stunning in the world. Less than a five minute walk from San Nicolas is the gitano quarter of Sacromonte where Spanish Gypsies have their homes in caves excavated from the soft rock and have developped as a tourist attraction famous for its flamenco dance and music evenings.
