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!

Make your way to Plaza Neuva and settle with a coffee or perhaps something stronger. It's the spot to plan your attack of the surrounding areas as it's at the foot of the Alhambra, Sacromonte and Albaicin areas. Plenty of little bars, cafés and ice cream or pastry shops.

Plaza Nueva is a nice area, it has good shops, cafes and restaurants. You can take some nice photos, buy some very nice and unique souvenirs and take in the surroundings. It is in a good location and there is lots to do, I recommend this place for tourists because it has a bit if everything

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
