A street full of artifacts from Morooco sold by moroocans in Granada! I don' t know what this has to do with Al-Andalus, but one just have to go along with it, I guess.

It's too bad all the stores offer pretty much the exact same thing. It's ok to check out but don't expect much.

If you like people watching this is a great area in Granada. The road is not that long, about a 10 minute walk from end to end but is the main route for people coming and going from Plaza Nueva to the Albaycin or the University areas. It is busy at all hours except early morning when nothing in Granada... More

Avoid. Festooned with 'world wide' tourist supplies. Sold as the 'old' area with the traditional ways.. Unable to agree. Dingy came to mind. Menus were repetitive. Walk through quickly…unless you have local knowledge as to where to drink and or eat I was hungry.

Elvira is indeed lively but not all of it - only certain parts of it. The street is a dingy, graffiti filled area, with lots of rather touristy looking shops selling cheap crafts. There are many restaurants in the area but it's hard to say which ones are really great. I didn't really enjoy the atmosphere at this street.

The fascinating thing for us was all the shops selling articles from Morocco. There were lots of leather goods as well small trinkets with a north African feel.

Lots of shops run mainly by Moroccans selling stuff for tourists, much of it the same as each other, but we bought a nice leather backpack, some slippers for my small child and some little wallets. We negotiated fair prices and were happy with our purchases. There is NO hard selling and it was all good natured. There looked like... More

My favorite place in town to have good tapas. The atmosphere is unique, it's right next to the arab market! And you can find any kind of bars, with any kind of music in it.

A fascinating street with some good bars and restaurants but spoiled in part by all of the graffiti which is daubed on nearly every wall ... not artistry but simple vandalism.
