A district steeped in history

Together with the Alhambra and Generalife, it has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. People from many different cultures have lived here, which gives the district an interesting mix.

A stroll around this part of Granada reveals the churches of San Cristóbal and San Bartolomé, with their wells. These are not the only ones, there is also the San Luis well and another in Plaza Salvador square at the start of the Cuesta del Chapiz hill, the Las Tomasas well, and the El Rey well is the largest in Granada. The Albaicín wall dates from the Nazrid era. It was built in the second half of the 14th century to defend the districts on San Cristóbal hill - Albaicín and Albaydalba. It goes from the Puerta de Guadix, at the end of the Paseo de los Tristes, through San Miguel Alto, Puerta de Fajalauza, Postigo de San Lorenzo to the Puerta de Elvira. The Puerta Fajalauza, also called Los Almendros, leads from the Albaicín to the Alfareros potters’ quarter. The walk also takes in the Casa Morisca de Yanguas and the Mudejar church of El Salvador, built in the 16th century on the site of the old Great Mosque of Albaicín. The tower and well of Bibalbonud, the San Nicolás viewpoint and the Puerta de Hizna Román complete the route.
