Historic square in the center of Granada. Several restaurants, souvenir shops and public buildings. A central bus stop for most of the buses. A very steep walkway up to the Alhambra begins here. Several shops selling hand made guitars.

The Plaza Nueva is always interesting because the tourist stores there have many good items on sale. When we visited this plaza, there was a young lady singing, while her male companion played the guitar. She had a very good and powerful voice and filled the plaza with her songs.

This central square is the beginning of most of the walking tours and other tours. There are some nice impressive buildings and a number of tapas and cafes. The Plaza Nueva has been and remains a genuine representation of Granadian life. During your stay in Granada, you will pass by this square more than once, when you go or come... More
