I am Jewish and feel that a Jew cannot go to Spain and miss the portions of a community that are or were Jewish. Judaism was an important part of Spain until the expulsion in 1492. I liked walking around Calle Elvira and the environs to learn a bit about the neighborhood in which my people once lived.

This narrow street is lined on both asides with small shops selling a all manner of touristic souvenirs. Also small restaurants featuring North African or Middle Eastern cuisine. You have the feeling that you are walking through a Middle Eastern bazaar.

The end near the gate represents the non tourist side of the city. As you walk away from the gate you pass a few historical buildings and alleyways. Then you are into restaurants and tourist shops. Some of the street is pedestrianised. There is also a decent little supermarket with fresh fruit. The tourist end is very busy. If you... More

Lots for the eyes to take in as you walk down the small alleyways loaded with Arabic shops. There were many scarves for sale and slippers.

Here the atmosphere of Granada might be at it's best. The shops, the cafés and all the people on the streets make this street amazing. Take a little detour and be surprised
