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

No need to go to Morocco. It is right at the base of the Albayzin area. Interesting shops selling Moroccan products. A mid eastern bazaar atmosphere. 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.

It was a touch of arabic-turkish culture in the middle of Spain. Typical tourist street, but still very pretty place. It is nice to walk here at nights when all shops are open

It's a fun street to walk through. I had dinner at one of the Middle Eastern Restaurants. The food was okay. They served a chickpea salad that was pretty good. If you are in the mood for some shopping, this is a good place to check out.

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.
