How to know the Albaicin on Segway Tour
The Albaicín district, declared a World Heritage Site in 1984, was the germ of the current city of Granada and still retains all the magic of its Arab past. In the Islamic stage, the current Albaicín was a set of different independent urban centers. In contrast, it was not until the modern era when it reached its current unitary conception. The Albaicín was originally a nucleus that extended northeast of the Alcazaba Cadima (old).
There are several versions about the origin of the Albaicín place name. The most accepted is the one that refers to an Arabic word that designates the neighborhood of the falconers. It was not until the end of the 15th century and the beginning of the 16th that the name began to be used interchangeably to refer to the original small suburb and to the whole urban area located in front of the Alhambra.
To walk through the Albaicín is to stroll through the history of Granada. Its buildings, its squares and the structure of its streets allow the observing visitor to recognise the different cultural and social transformations of the city.
