It's charged with the city's essence. Chilled, friendly, beautiful square full of typical bars serving typical food, surrounded by the beauty of the old arab town's disposition. Definitely a place you can't miss

That's a square close to Granada center where you can find six or seven restaurants. Is not a very crowded and turistic place so you can wal around easily. All are good good food and tapas. Tipical Andalousse food and good prices. Later if you feel strong you can climb the Alhambra hill. Is a very nice walk.

Really. Don't bother. What you get is a small square with playground and a row of restaurants. The only interesting thing is a view of the gorgeous Hotel Alhambra Palace sitting majestically on the hill.

The Campo del Principe has a large jasper and alabaster statue of Cristo de los Favores that is quite impressive. In the 17th century the plague hit Granada, but the people in the area were not affected much because they think that they prayed to this statue.

This leafy square, at the foot of hill leading up to the Alhambra, has a young and student-y buzz about it. There's one great pasta restaurant as well as a number of cheap-and-cheerful tapas bars.

There are at least 6 restaurants in this square. The one we went to was fairly ordinary with slow service and basic food.
