We were initially dropped here by the tourist 'train' which took us from out hotel next to La Alhambra and into the centre of the city in order to meet with our guide to begin that walking tour. We got off said 'train' at 11.00 and had an hour to kill, but according to the electronic thermometer in the pharmacy... More

It's the old city center, where the free tours have their meeting point. There are also a lot of restaurants, and the starting point of walking to Alhambra.

Our drinks were slightly more expensive here but it is a great Plaza near the centre. You can pick up taxis here for the Alhambra or take a ride on the tourist train, well worth it!

Outdoor cafes, shops, taxi stand, buskers, gelato, bakeries, fountain, lots of benches, and a little grocery store. Nice place to rest and hang out or grab a meal and/or drink. Also a great area to stay with several lanes and streets heading in different directions. The Seville Cathedral is an easy walk from it.

We were advised by our concierge to avoid this plaza as it is expensive. Correct. Mediocre food offered at extortionate prices aimed at the tourists. Much better fare in the side streets.

Plaza Nueva certainly isn't the nicest looking plaza in Granada, but it sure is a busy one. It really bustles in the evening as people descend upon the Albaycin to eat, shop, or watch flamenco. There are a few restaurants here and a few places to buy touristy wares. We used it as a meeting point and it was very... More

This is a central area where many things start from. Great, as was a 2 min walk from our hotel. So many narrow little cobblestoned streets with shops of all sorts.

We stayed a few hundred feet from this plaza and like it very much. It is also one of the many entrances to the Albazin, but easy to get to from the Cathedral area. It was fun hanging out there each night to see what street entertainment there was. One evening, we saw flamenco by young folks and loved it.

There are a few "plazas" in Granada and this is one of the liveliest. Close to Alhambra Palace, it attracts many tourists but it is large enough to make you feel comfortable. There is a refreshing fountain in the middle, restaurants and tapas bars around it and Carrera del Darro starts here. There are free flamenco shows at night, performed... More

I don't really like places where the restaurant hosts and hostesses are outside trying to lure you into the restaurants. This happens a lot at the Plaza Nueva. it is very crowded at night and was filled with tourists. Nonetheless the people appeared to be having fun, so if that is your thing, you would enjoy it. We preferred finding... More
