The Albaicin (or Albayzin) is a district within Granada known for its narrow winding streets reminiscent of the area's Medieval Moorish past. It was declared a world heritage site in 1984. Located on a hill facing the Alhambra, tourists enjoy incredible views from the viewing point by the church of San Nicolas. The area is home to several attractions including the remains of an Arab bath complex, Granada's archeological museum, and the church of San Salvador.

"My favorite landmark is the Albaicin which is the only gypsy neighborhood. Once you climb to the top, you can overlook all the Alhambra and the Sierra Nevada mountains for a breathtaking view of the city."-Rachel P., Penn State University
