This is a famous street in Granada for talk a long promenade to take in the beauty of the city. You will pass some great restaurants for refreshments. However, it is for looking at the old houses, the stream and scenic views of Alhambra in the distance that dominates the skyline. There are various tourist shops and a venue to watch traditional flamenco dancing. It has a charm as you dodge the taxis and buses that frequent the street. The cobblestones help to transport you to ancient times and you can only but wonder about days gone by.

This is a short, flat paved walk, with the curious but evocative name, ‘Walk of the Sad Ones’.
From the 19th century, this was the path for funeral processions on the way to the San Jose cemetery. The cemetery itself is actually still some way away, across the river and up above the Alhambra but it was such a trek, that most of the procession would stop here and say their last goodbyes to the deceased and shed their tears here.
The Paseo de los Tristes runs alongside the river Darro and sits at the foot of the Alhambra hillside. Today, there is a large open terrace, where you can sit in the sun under umbrellas and have something to eat or drink. From here, you get beautiful views of the Alhambra, especially at night when it is flooded with golden lights.
It is a very historic area. The fountain in the middle dates back to this time, to 1609 and the nearby Church of San Pedro & San Pablo, is a little mudejar church dating back to 1500s, with a bell-tower that you can climb. Keep an eye out for the Renaissance House of Castril and its enigmatic inscription, "Esperando La Del Cielo" (Waiting for Heaven).
From here, we continued up the hill on the left, to Sacramonte to explore the cave houses.  

GETTING THERE: if you’re having trouble finding it on a map, it is probably it is listed under its official name is Paseo del Padre Andres Manjon - Paseo de los Tristes is just a local nickname. From Plaza Nueva, if you are looking towards the St Ana church, head down Carrera del Darro, the narrow cobbled street on the left which leads into the Paseo del Tristes.

Another area you can view the Alhambra from below. It's a nice area with seating and restaurants that do menu of the day for €12 euros. There is a bakery nearby if you are feeling peckish but don't fancy a full meal or tapas. From this area you can walk on with the wall/river to your right and the road bends to the left and goes uphill. Just as you walk up there is a nice garden on the right Palacio de los Cordova and further on to the right you can walk up to Museo de Las Cuevas which also gives a good viewpoint of the Alhambra. Tip: wear sensible shoes as you do a lot of walking in this city and most is either up or down hill.

It is a lovely stroll along this very narrow street. Full of history with excellent views of the river and Alhambra. You need to watch yourself as it is busy with electric /hybrid taxis and you do not hear them on the narrow street.

Paseo de los Tristes is a nice area to walk around. There are some cafes and restaurants, but there are also interesting things to see. The buildings, the natural environment, and some historical sights along the way. On high enough ground you can have some really good views, you can see the Alhambra and the surrounding places.

Walking this street is interesting to say the least. It is directly below the Alhmabra on one side and follows a stream up the mountain -- be prepared for cobblestones, some traffic from taxis and small buses but also be prepared to be excited by the beauty of the area. Well worth the time and exercise to walk.

This is the same as Carrera del Darro ... check on google maps , amazing views of Alhambra from the bottom ..lots of good bars and restaurants , it is called Paseo De los Tristes because this is the last road that people who passed away were taken , ancient and fantastic place .. at the end you can walk ..to Sacromonte or El Mirador but it is a very long and steep walk
to get there walk from Plaza Nueva walk along the river Darro
In Plaza Nueva you can take the bus to Mirador and Sacromonte

Walk by the Daro, and mix with waves of tourists and cars that oblige you to stand by the walls in order to avoid being run over. Choose to go early in the morning and avoid week ends.

Sitting in the shadow of the Alhambra is a very nice way to enjoy your lunch. With a very reasonably price (12 EU) menu del dia, you can eat well without spending a lot of money. We got a couple of beers (which come with a free tapa, so you are REALLY eating well) and then relaxed and ate at a leisurely pace while people watching and occasionally looking over at The Alhambra. A great place for your midday meal.

Enjoyed the walk along the river. Best to do when it’s quieter. You can stop off for refreshments along the way.

You’re walking in the steps of centuries worth of history, enjoy each step.
