El Albayzín is a district of present
day Granada that retains the narrow winding streets of its Muslim
past. It was declared a world heritage site in 1994, along with the
more famous Alhambra.
Highlights within the area include the remains of an Arab bath
complex, Granada's archaeological museum, and the church of San
Salvador, built on the remains of a mosque. The Albayzín also
contains some original Moorish houses and a wide-range of
restaurants, including several streets whose eateries are inspired
by North Africa.
