This seems to be the centre of town. You can reach all attractions from here, so good meeting point.

I guess Plaza Nueva is not a specific plaza to visit its just an easy meeting spot. I do like a restaurant called Los Diamantes which is on this Plaza. They serve Seafood tappas with their drinks.

We used Plaza Nueva as the center point for us to take the Granada Hop On Hop Off (HoHo) train. It is an average looking square. There are many restaurants and souvenir shops around this square.

Pleasant square in the centre of Granada with lots of bars and eating places. Be prepared to pay a little more for drinks as it's so popular but is is buzzing. Several craft type shops to buy your souvenirs at.

It sits at the base of the hill that leads to the Alhambra, it connects to the city, it is the launching point for every taxi in town.

I stayed on the square in an airbnb and wish I hadn't. It's so touristy that it's hard to find any real culture. Taxis, cheap diners and sellers everywhere. The food I tried was disgusting. I don't plan to come back here.

The place is an absolute beauty. It is nicely set with the background of the palace and the hills around, There are a lot of cafes and souvenir shops along the square. The best part about the place is the romantic atmosphere with numerous street performers performing their acts. Its a great place to spend in the evenings after visiting... More
