I lived in Granada for 2 years, about 2 blocks from Plaza Nueva, and so this was (and is) one of my favorite places in all of Spain. It's at the entrance to both the Alhambra and the Albaicin, 2 fascinating places to visit. Antique shops and cafes line the small streets nearby, and it's a great place to simply... More

There are tons of cafes and restaurants on Plaza Nueva, and Calle Elivra (one of the most popular streets with tapas bars) is just around the corner! Little shops with souvenirs galore surround the edges of the plaza and there is usually live music on sunny afternoons. Definitely a good place to pass time in Granada.

Just below the Cathedral and along Mensones shopping streets is this beautiful square. Plenty of seating, cafes, restaurants, bakeries- ideal spot for a drink or bite to eat whilst enjoying the scenery.

I loved this plaza for its vibe and abundance of sunshine. It does not matter if you are coming back from a visit to either Alhambra or Albayzin, you can count on finding a table where sun is available for few hours. I liked a restaurant at the corner of Calle Carcel Altar. They had the best fried fish plate,... More

Great plaza; lots of shops for shopping, souvenirs and plenty of restaurants to choose from. Great to unwind and relax after a long day, especially if you've visited AlHambra beforehand!

You will not be able to avoid this plaza as it is thronging with tourists and locals. One can eat am sure all basic menus but roads leading off here will allow you to explore the town. Tourist shops abound. Did enjoy the Discover Spain expo that was on when I was in town…only shame was not being able to... More

We stopped by Plaza Nueva a few times during our visit. We had a snack in one of the restaurants and watch flamenco dancers who were entertaining. I actually took lots of pictures of them. Around the Plaza you can walk through side streets which will take you to stores that sell Moorish items ... very enjoyable.

We enjoyed a wonderful walking tour with our guide, Laura. She was informative, funny and entertaining. We did the free morning tour with her for about 3 hours around the Albazin area and enjoyed it so much we booked the afternoon Sacramonte, cave tour. We were given time to soak up the atmosphere of Grenada and she conveyed her love... More

After visiting Alhambra, we grabbed a cab to take us to the town center. After browsing through the menu posted at the outdoor patios, we were led by a server to sit at the table. As it turned out, it was a small snack place serving hot meals. So make sure the menu posted belongs to the right restaurant, Nevertheless... More
