Granada, Spain: Albayzín and Alcaicería

More info about travel to Granada: The Albayzín in Granada is Spain’s best old Moorish quarter, with its labyrinthine back lanes and inviting neighborhood squares. The Alcaicería, or silk market, is a tourist trap housed in a modern reconstruction of the original market – but it’s fun to explore.
