A large pleasant square in the center of Granada which is a good starting place to take you to the town, the Albaicín or the Alhambra. The square holds both restaurants, coffee... read more

Absolutely one of my favorite cities. I could not get enough - it was quaint and beautiful. I loved all the places I visited here.

Just got done staying on the Plaza Nueva for 2 nights! Fabulous location! Close to buses and walking to sights! Patio dining everywhere and if you walk to the end of the plaza to the left of the church you can walk along the river to tapas bars and a restaurant with Alhambra views on your right not too far...

Although the Plaza Nueva is not one of the best looking places of granada, it is ok to stay in the neighborhood because a lot of the interesting things are within walking distance. The Alhambra for example is 15 minutes away (steep walk up though). Lot’s of restaurants and tapas bars too.

Cafes, bars, pleasant walking and a view of the Alhambra Palace - add in warm, winter sunshine - Granada is the perfect place for a winter break.

Not much going on in the plaza, but you'll find yourself near many restaurants (Spanish and Morroccan), bars, and morroccan looking stores.

Plaza Nueva is a typical square crowded with tourists. The road to the north by the river is very interesting. Don't miss that. There are shops selling various things to tourists and restaurants. Nothing special but worth a visit if you are in Granada.

We spent 3 days in Granada after our arrival in Spain, and always started and ended our days here. It is definitely very touristy, but also lots of fun, with lots of places to eat surrounding it. Historic church in the square, several historic buildings & also several large fountains in the nearby area. The beautiful Carrero del Darro branches... More

We went on this 2 hour free walking tour. Definitely worth the time. Our guide, Eloisa, graduated university as a history major and she was knowledgable and informative.

A large pleasant square in the center of Granada which is a good starting place to take you to the town, the Albaicín or the Alhambra. The square holds both restaurants, coffee shops, and hotels, etc. Well worth a visit and hard to avoid when you are in Granada!
