Albayzin Properties - properties for sale in the Albayzín, Sacromonte and Realejo districts of the city of Granada
Estate agents concentrating solely on the historic areas of Granada city
Is there any better place in the world to live than Granada? The city has every facility and yet is built on a human scale. Culture, history, a vibrant atmosphere, excellent transport connections and an enviable climate in a city where it is possible to walk everywhere in the centre.
We are property specialists in the three historic districts of the Albayzín, Realejo and Sacromonte, traditionally the areas where foreign residents have chosen to live.
The Albayzín (pronounced al-by-sin and sometimes written Albaicín) is a marriage of contrasts: rich and poor, new and old, renovated and tumbling down. It is home to artists, singers, artisans and gyspies; to the very rich and to those of only modest means, to Spanish and foreigners alike. All have one thing in common: a love of the ambience, the cobbled streets, the spectacular views, the tranquility, the irrepresible energy of the Albaicineros. In short, the sheer impossibility that is the Albayzin.
Realejo is the former Jewish quarter of the Moorish city of Granada and is situated on the skirts of the Alhambra, sandwiched between the monument itself and the modern city. Originally known as Garnata al-Yahud (Jewish Granada) it was renamed by the Christian monarchs after the conquest of 1492 to Realejo, meaning royal encampment.
Sacromonte is the former gypsy quarter, famous for its flamenco zambras (cave concerts) which are highly popular with both visitors and locals. Like the Albayzín it consists of narrow cobbled streets with whitewashed houses which cling to the northern bank of the River Darró. On the opposite side are green hills and escaping to the countryside involves no more than a short walk.
Having lived in the Albayzín for more than fourteen years, and having redeveloped properties ourselves, we know the city well and we know what a privilege it is to live so close to the centre of a vibrant city yet enjoy an almost village-like atmosphere, tranquil, verdant and only a short walk away from the countryside.
We market all types of property from fabulous carmens to houses hidden away in the narrow streets, to glorious apartments with views of the Alhambra. Everything from the humble to the luxurious, within the three districts that we serve. The Albayzín, Realejo and Sacromonte deserve an agency dedicated solely to properties within the historic barrios and this is the market we serve.
Backed by the marketing power of we reach out to clients throughout the world and we aim to provide the very best service whether you are buying a property or you have decided that it is time to sell.
