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

Mostly travellers, and plenty of eateries which are packed on weekends. It is the point where you can walk up to Sacremonte or Alhambra, and there's plenty to see and eat. Check it out!

Plaza Nueva is situated in the heart of Granada Spain near to Cathedral where almost all city buses travelling in Granada have to pass through this place. The roads in Plaza Nueva are very clean with disciplined traffic , people driving bicycle or moped or car observe the traffic signals very promptly, respect each other. There are plenty of supermarkets,... More

My Boyfriend and I had plenty of great free tapas in this Plaza. There is a lot of activity and yes plenty of tourists. There are smaller Plazas and streets where you get a more authentic vibe but who would miss good wine, good food and a great view of the Alhambra!

Surrounded by cafes, bars and numerous tourist shops selling rubbish, this is not a particularly nice looking place - basically it's just an ordinary town centre square. Probably good as a meeting point to then go elsewhere. Excellent as a starting point to take a stroll up the Carrera del Darro - a much better scenic area than this!
