Overview
During our walk, we will discover in depth the historical neighborhoods of Albaicín and Sacromonte, accompanied by an official heritage expert guide.  This very comprehensive visit is especially intended for curious and demanding travelers, who want to understand and feel the history and soul of two neighborhoods with exceptional personality. This is a cultural tour that does not appear in the guides. We will start with the Albaicin below where the Carrera del Darro, so often described as one of the most beautiful streets in the world, shows us facades of stately houses, convents and churches, as well as its old stone bridges and an Arab bath. From there, we will go up to Sacromonte, the traditionally gypsy neighborhood of Granada. Its winding and silent sidewalks reveal the whitewashed caves, the flamenco zambras and charming views of the lush valley, so purposely called Valparaíso. Then, the upper part of the Albaicín with its alleys and its romantic carmenes.
