It's an important plaza because of the fact that you'll pass it several times during your stay, no doubt. It's no Piazza San Marco; it's a fairly small square, filled with the usual tourists en route to Albayzin, the Paseo de los Tristes, the Alhambra or just sitting in the shade to escape from the searing heat for a little...

Its a place you are quite likely to go through more than once if you are staying in Granada more than one night. A weird Tuscany-like eibe (its the church) gets me here. Reaaonable places to eat - great directions to stroll towards, old,older and new too,

There are plenty of convenient bistros on the square catering to tourists who like watching other tourists. Nothing wrong with that, it's a fun pastime. But if you like paying less and enjoying the food more, exploring the smaller businesses slightly off the beaten track is also fun. For example, Shawarma King, aka Teteria del Generalife, is just a few... More

We walked down from Alhambra Palace to the Plaza. You just need a good pair of walking shoes to do this route. The square is of medium size but on a sunny day the place fills up with students, tourists, locals, entertainers, onewheel cycles .... There are a number of cafes and souveneir shops . Take a beer , just... More

The newly in charge Christians built this plaza over the river and it is home to food and souvenir businesses. You can also buy some fantastic gelato here and catch the sight seeing bus.

The Plaza Nueva is one of the main plazas in Granada and it is filled with restaurants and cafeterias where one can order food and drinks. It is very pleasant to be on the terrace when there is good weather. The plaza also has an elegant government building which contains the courts of justice of the city. There are many... More

There are numerous tapas bars and restaurants all around the square. Very good place to relax and watch the (sometimes) entertainment.

Lots of great cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. The only downside is there is no parking, which didn't help as I was staying at the Macia Plaza. When there go into the Gran Taberna, it's a proper bar, c/w free tapas with your drink. The No 31 bus stops here to take you to the viewpoint for the Alhambra.

We stayed here for two days in late December mainly to see the Alhambra. We also wanted to see the town and this plaza is the best place to begin, particularly if you are staying up the hill near the Alhambra and take a cab downtown. It's central to most of the sights one would want to see as well... More

Plenty of eating places, many with tables out on the square where you can sit in the sun (important in January!!). Also touristy shopping places, bakeries, street performances - it full of activity and interest. The tourist information centre is here, where you can pick up maps and information. Sure, it's touristy, but plenty of locals too. Charming, character filled... More
