One of reason why I deeply fell in love with Granada 7 years ago is its astonishing street art scene I consider as an open-air gallery... Born and raised in France, where the most classical fine arts get along with a vivid hiphop culture, the graffiti caught me naturally 25 years ago... And I've been lucky enough to turn this passion into a job, as I've been working as a street art guide for 6 years! The walls always speak the language of its inhabitants, reflecting their culture, so follow me to discover what secrets Granada is hiding behind its painted walls full of history and fun facts!

Where you'll be
We'll start the tour in front of the Cathedral (meeting point at the door of the Madraza palace, calle Oficios 14)! Then we'll get deeper in the Realejo and its beautiful murals to reach the peaceful and non-touristic Barranco de los Abogados and its various surprises... The tour duration is closer to 2h45 than the 3h announced, because of the time we'll need to head back to the city center, with a beautiful walk along the river...
