El Albaicin, Granada, Spain

Here I post some pics I made last September in this beautiful place, hope you like it and visit it some time
Text from wikipedia about it:
"El Albayzín (also Albaicín or El Albaicín) is a district of present day Granada, Spain that retains the narrow winding streets of its Medieval Moorish past. It was declared a world heritage site in 1984, along with the more famous Alhambra.

It rises on a hill facing the Alhambra and many tourists journey into the Albayzin primarily for the spectactular views of the Alhambra from the viewing point by the church of San Nicolas.

Highlights within the area include the remains of an Arab bath complex, Granada's archeological museum, and the church of San Salvador, built on the remains of a Moorish mosque. The Albayzin also contains some original Moorish houses and a wide-range of restaurants, including several streets whose eateries are inspired by North Africa.

Albaicín is one of the quartiers of Granada, the mediaeval one, it has about 8.500 habitants, but the city 236.207 and 548.283 the metropolitan area, so it's the smallest place in the city, it's full of northern european hippies who are going to live there every year

And the city of Granada is very popular for university students, there are 60.000 of them in the city, not counted in the official population figures.
