From the bus or train station take bus number 3 or 33 to Gran via 1 stop, which is also known as the Cathedral stop. From there you can either come up walking or take the MINIBUS # 31 to get up the Albayzin. Get off at the stop: monasterio st. isabel la real, makuto is located 50 m down from the monastery.
WALKING from the Cathedral: Cross GRAN VIA Street and Exit the bus and walk back towards the intersection you just passed. You will be on a street called the Gran Via and at the end of the crossing will be a Caixa Bank. Cross Gran Via here and head into the street called CARCEL BAJA. Keep walking. Then, continue to walk up next street called CALDERERÃA NUEVA. You will be walking past many Arabic shops and restaurants. At the end of Caldereria Nueva there is a church and the Street name changes to 'CUESTA DE SAN GREGORIO'. Follow up this street until you reach an impressive orange moorish house called 'Carmen de la Media Luna' with a big palmtree infront. Here turn to your left through 'MULADAR DE DOÃA SANCHA' and the first one to your right is Calle TIÃA (Makuto is in number 18). If coming with heavy wheel luggage we recommend to a taxi at Plaza Nueva since the streets are coblestone (read intructions)
From the airport: Take the airport bus to Granada and get off in Gran VÃa con Reyes CatÃ³licos stop,(city center, estimated time: 25 min.),which is also known as the Cathedral stop. From there follow upper intructions Walking from the Cathedral since minibus 31 is not reaching Santa Isabel La Real due to street restoration.
Ask the driver to take you to "Monasterio de Santa Isabel la Real", which is the nearest place to Makuto where a taxi can arrive. It can cost you about 6-8 euros from Bus or Train St, and 30 euros from Granada's Airport depending on traffic. Calle TiÃ±a is just in front of this Monastery. This option is highly recommended if coming with wheel chair or heavy luggage. Some rude taxi drivers might try to drop you at some other point easier for them, do not get down if the donÂ´t let you at Santa Isabel La Real Monastry (cars can reach this point even with the streets restoration).
From MÃ¡laga, take the ring road of Granada (Span.: 'circunvalacion'), and take the exit called Mendez Nunez and continue along the Avenida Fuente Nueva until you reach the Avenida de la Constitucion. There, at the light, go straight on into the Avenida de Madrid and take the
direction of Albayzin-Carretera de Murcia.
From Carretera de Murcia, you enter into the AlbaycÃn through the Pages Street (Calle Pages), continue until
you arrive the Salvador Church (Iglesia del Salvador), once there go around the church into the Tomasas Street (Carril de las Tomasas), then take Camino Nuevo de San Nicolas, until you reach at least Santa Isabel la Real.
You should park in that street. To get to the house by car is not easy and it is difficult to find a place to park.
Calle TiÃ±a is just in front of the Monastery Santa Isabel la Real.
Another option could be: park the car in the parking El Triunfo in the Avenida de la Consitucion. In this case,
turn to the right at the light mentioned above into the Avenida de la Constitucion and you will see the parking
after a few metres. You continue your way walking up or by taxi.
