On the Northern banks of the Darro, opposite the Alhambra is the Moorish Albaicin. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was the area to which the Muslims retreated when Boabdil handed the city to the Christians.
One thing is for sure though, its exotic ambience is still in tact!
The walk to Albaicin was a pleasant one indeed. On our first stop we came to this building, tucked behind the shops onto one side. The Corral Del Carbon. This currently houses the tourist office and is well-preserved considering it is a 14th century grandeur. It was once a caravanserai for travelling merchants.
