This is the main old city plaza of Granada.The Plaza has a few restaurants and its not actually in a square shape. The plaza turns lively in the evening with flamenco dancers performing and some of these performers are very good. If you want to see a flamenco show and don't want to burn a hole in your pocket,you can... More

This is a touristic place, but you have to pass by at night for a free flamenco show. It take place just in front of the justice court (which is a superb building).

This is very close to our hotel Casa 1800 and many entertainment in the afternoon. Occasionally a wedding at the nearby church. Plentiful restaurant in the plaza.

Very busy and noisy but not much to see apart from restaurants and tourists. Only point in going is to catch the tourist train or as a drinks stop between the Albeyicin and the town centre.

Like many plazas in Spain. If you haven't seen one, this is nice, but nothing all that different. I would go there, but the Alhambra is the don't miss spot here!

We read reviews to visit here, but not sure why. Its a square with no great significance. I gave it 2 stars because there is a good icecream shop, info centre, great cafe and the road starts to Alhambra.....other than that not really sure why anyone would visit here.

This is a fun area, buzzing with positive energy. Shops, retaurants and coffee spots abound. It is fun to wander on foot. The tram also has a major stop there. Buy a day ticket, and remember to tell them if you may qualify for the Senior discount. Tram tour of town is fun and very interesting (buy the earplugs to... More

Great place to meet the family. It is centrally located near the Daro River, Albayzín and Barrio Realejo (formerly the Jewish Quarter) neighborhoods. The first square to be built by the Christians is known as the "New Square," even though it is over 400 years old. Great ice cream across the street and nice starting point for our Segway tour...

I love Plaza Nueva for the buzz. But please don't eat or drink in this square. Because it is a tourist trap the food quality is mediocre and the prices high.There are many better establishments only a stones throw away in the side streets or one of the other Plazas. Try the atmospheris Plaza Trinidad for example.
