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.

Of all the food that we ate all over Spain, this was the worst place. It is a tourist trap=bad food and they charge you for every single thing.

Calle Elvira has a very nice location, central in the old city. I have enjoyed the walks to the sightseeings and the arabic shops and Tapas bars. I have loved the atmosphere, traditional and vivid. I have bought some arabic trousers, which I am still wearing, from the shop below the appartment. The shop owner below the appartment will give... More
