Really. Don't bother. What you get is a small square with playground and a row of restaurants. The only interesting thing is a view of the gorgeous Hotel Alhambra Palace sitting majestically on the hill.

The Campo del Principe has a large jasper and alabaster statue of Cristo de los Favores that is quite impressive. In the 17th century the plague hit Granada, but the people in the area were not affected much because they think that they prayed to this statue.

There are at least 6 restaurants in this square. The one we went to was fairly ordinary with slow service and basic food.
