Good street to wonder for a variety of shops and cafes/bars

This is a good street to simply walk on to find a variety of shops and bars. It can get crowded, and expect to be approached about trying one of the tapas restaurants.

If you have never travelled and enjoy shop after shop of the same stuff ... probably made in China ... then perhaps you will enjoy this section of Granada. I personally didn't see culture but the same overpriced trinkets shop after shop. Sorry Granada ... I love your beautiful city just not the tourist trap areas !!

I felt like Marrakech has been transported to Granada. Same souvenirs are there! It's a very small street full of souvenir shops

Middle eastern cafe/hookah bars and restaurants interspersed between these shops. This area really comes alive at night. The lamps are exceptionally captivating and lends a magical aura to the surroundings. Go and experience a... More

In walking Elvira you leave Spain and enter Morocco- We walked Elvira during our Albayzin wanderings. Shops touristy but didnt stop us from checking them out and buying a few things. Neat to see that the Arab culture has remained and you can get something other than tapas to eat

Walked through every day we were in Granada , mix of tea shops,Moroccan restaurants , bars and lots of shopping. Whatever time of day we visited it was pretty busy but it's a better atmosphere as the sun goes down and the lamps in the shops attract attention.

Calle Elvira enjoys a central location and is a pleasant alternative to the hustle and bustle of the popular tapas streets. It is lined with Moorish style tea shops and cafes offering quality food and drink at reasonable prices.
