Hosted in English, Spanish, French, Italian

What you'll do

We will start by heading to a small non-tourist square, near the meeting point, with wonderful views of the Albaicín where I will give you the Ybedi treasure map and the first clue of the game. At every location there is a challenge or riddle that can help you find out more about the Albayzin and the culture of the moriscos. Then you will be free to carry out the activity in complete autonomy, with your own rhythms; anyway I will be available via whatsapp to help you solve the clues if you need.
Then off you go into the historic district following clues, solving riddles, and enjoying an immersion into the history of the Albayzin.
You can do it when and for how long you want. The treasure of Ybedi and the curse of Albayzin is self-guided, typically done on foot.
We have a version for children from 4 to 13 years old.
Other things to note
It is the fantastic mix of treasure hunt, tourism and escape game.

I´m from Granada and i´m a curious explorer so i know very, very well the less tourist Albayzin. I really like the story and I am very good at creating puzzles, riddles and adventures.
Thus joining the fictional story based on real facts of Albayzin and the games is how I created "The treasure of the merchant Ybedi and the curse of the albayzin"

Where you'll be

You'll play "The Treasure of merchant Ybedi and the curse of the Albayzin"and you will only discover incredible sites of the Albayzín if you are worthy of the enigmas of Ybedi and solve the clues. I cannot tell you all the locations, that would spoil the treasure hunt.
But be careful because you can know the "curse of the Albayzín".

Ik vond het een geweldige ervaring om op deze manier de wijk Albacin wat beter te leren kennen. Het enige wat het nog beter zou maken, is een afsluitend drankje aan het einde van de tocht.

Great fun, something different and our kids loved it (10 and 6). A cool way to see parts of Granada we may not have seen otherwise.

This experience has been fantastic! I love the concept and hope this will spread, it's a unique way to discover a touristic area having a lot of fun. If you like riddles, go for it, you won't regret! Every single detail is well done, I just cannot imagine the time David spent conceiving and realizing everything. I did it on my own with my baby, and some of the riddles were quite challenging (at least for me), but David was very available to help at any moment on whatsapp. I suppose that if you are a group, it's a bit easier (and even funnier than it already was). I also loved the fact that you can do it at your own rhythm, making a break whenever you want, which was really useful with the baby. On top of it, David is really nice and he gave me some very good and personalized tips about the city. 5 stars experience, thanks again!
