Paseo de los Tristes

La Carrera del Darro leads to the Paseo de los Tristes, another typical part of the Albaicín quarter. This is where the Cuesta del Chapiz hill begins its steep ascent leading you to the Sacromonte district. On the Cuesta del Chapiz hill you must stop to admire the splendid Casa Morisca, or the Palacio de los Córdova, based on a 16th-century building that was reconstructed on the same site in the 1960’s. Today it houses the Municipal Archives.
