So romantic

What a perfect day to go on Valentine's Day! It was beautiful weather and the colours of the moss, the stone fences, the houses and the river were all spectacular.

This walk alongside the Alhambra and the Darro river is a must to enjoy the visit to Granada. Nice hotels around, restaurants, shops, street musicians... Take it slow and breath in.

A lovely enjoyable... More

Our hostel was just off this street, we were so lucky. Brilliant wee bar just on the left facing the Alhambra. Lovely to sit and watch the world go by.

This beautiful cobbled road is a pleasant stroll with streets lined with religious buildings, local homes, restaurants and souvenir shops. Excellent to rent as segway and sightsee or wander en route to the city centre of Sacramonte.

The old bridges over the river and an old neighborhood forms the identity of the street. I took this on a rather cold sunny January day and then halfway through the street I decided to make it towards Mirador de sant Nicolas. And I got lost in the old Islamic Albayzin with long never ending irregular streets. Don't make the... More

Called the most beautiful street in Granada by many, a stroll along the river between the rising white-washed houses to the north and the looming Alhambra to the south is an experience not to be missed.

i really enjoyed walking back up to Albaizin from the city centre, along the Carrera del Darro. The street is a bit tight with cars as well but the road has a great view of the Alhambra and there are lovely bars and restaurants along it. Safe to walk in the evening too

Carrera del Darro is a nice street with sett stones next to Rio Darro. Pretty much everywhere along this street you can look up at The Alhambra. There are some nice small shops at this street and although they have many of the same items as all the other tourist shops in Granada they seem to have a slightly better... More

Carrera del Darro is a magnificent place to walk, Being a narrow road, but it was packed with people and tourist bus going uphill to view the famous Alhambra from across a narrow valley. It took me 80 minutes to walk the bus route to the top of the hill, Personally I preferred to walk rather taking the bus, because... More
