“"Rising above the modern lower town, the Alhambra and the Albaycín, situated on two adjacent hills, form the medieval part of Granada. [...] The residential district of the Albaycín is a rich repository of Moorish vernacular architecture, into which the traditional Andalusian architecture blends harmoniously." -- UNESCO”

“This iconic street has great nightlife if you are interested in going out. Hit the streets around 10 PM for food and then the clubs open between 12 - 3 AM or 3 AM to sunrise, where you will find live music and dancing. Remember, the buses stop running at 11:30 PM, so you will have to take a taxi back to La Chana (between 7-10 EUR). ”
