Hearing: Enjoy the sound of the water flowing in a Moresque cistern or through the Darro River towards the hidden vault of the riverbed when it reaches the square called Plaza Nueva. Listen to the tone of the early riser bell which announces the beginning of a new day. The melody of the long and lilting greeting among the neighbours. The laughter of the kids playing. Sometimes, the kiss of a couple. A heartbreaking poem loaded with sadness that bursts into the night. A repetition of mellow sounds that requires silence to be appreciated.
Touch: Feel with your hands the rough walls that twist and turn through narrow streets. The walls are sometimes in poor condition due to an incomprehensive state of neglect. Touch lightly these walls full of history; if they could speak… By touching them, we are almost able to experience the past of the convents, the caves, the Islamic and Roman remains, the Moorish and Nasrid houses. Hands play a central role in the district that was also the birthplace of artisans. Thousands of different artisans, according to chronicles. Nowadays the Albayzín is still the home of ceramists, guitar-makers, silversmiths, goldsmiths and many other ancient crafts.
