A nice walk to see this culture integrated into Granada. The shops, restaurants and smells feels like you are in Morocco. Not so great with prams or strollers due to all the steps and dark lit alleyways.

Looks exotic and claims to be exotic but it’s really just McDonalds in disguise. One good thing - the souvenirs and trinkets get cheaper. Watch carefully - dog owners don’t clean up well.
