A stroll through history between the Alhambra and the Albaicín

The Alhambra and Albaicín are today closer than ever, joined together by the Dobla de Oro, a cultural tourism route promoted by the Council of the Alhambra and Generalife that seeks to strengthen the ties between the oldest neighbourhood in the city and the Alhambra Group of Monuments, both of which were declared World Heritage sites by the Unesco.

From the hill of La Sabika, on which the Alhambra stands, the Albaicín appears as a wash of white houses speckled by the vertical forms of cypress trees and bell towers of churches that once were mosques. From the Albaicín, by contrast, the Alhambra is a thick forest whose trees are crowned by the saffron walls of the Alcazaba, the Nasrid Palaces and their towers.

The Dobla de Oro invites us to immerse ourselves in a unique cultural landscape, a glittering path through the great Hispano-Muslim monuments of Granada, declared World Heritage sites by Unesco, while wandering through bewitchingly beautiful streets that are full of life and touched by the magic of history, art and flamenco.

A walk around six monuments

The Dobla de Oro invites us to a walk from the Alhambra to the Albaicín through six Hispano-Muslim monuments nestled in the Christian city and district.

The Palace of Dar Al-Horra was built in the heart of the Zirí citadel as the residence of the Sultana Aixa, the mother of Boabdil, the last Nasrid King of Granada.

The Corral del Carbón, the old alhóndiga and shelter of merchants, is on the side of Reyes Catolicos Street, in the widening of the Christian city.

Back in the Albaicín, the Bañuelo , considered the oldest and best preserved public bath in Spain, opens its doors.

The House of Zafra is located in the lower Albaicín, near the Maristan and the Convent of Conception. It is not far from the Casa del Horno de Oro, near the Carrera del Darro and Paseo de los Tristes. .

Casa del Chapiz is on the border between the Albaicin and Sacromonte and currently holds the headquarters of the School of Arab Studies.
