“What's the fuss?”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

This is the start of the path they called Paseo de los Tristes (Promenade of the Sad Ones) because the funeral processions used to pass here en route to the cemetry. The river to the right, just under The Alhambra, is more like a stream (at least it is in summer!). Some even have gone to proclaim is as the nicest walk on earth. Not true. It's a pleasant walk although it's not pedestrianised, surprisingly, but nothing more than that for me.

However, as you carry on, and go up Cuesta del Chapiz, on your way to Sacromonte, on the right, you'll find a gorgeous garden. Free entrance. This is Palacio de los Córdoba (sometimes spelled with a "v") and it's not even listed here. It's a peaceful place, great to stop in the shade, take a breather, look up to the majestic Alhambra, listen to the birds and the sound of the fountains, before you carry on climbing up the road. Here's their website: http://www.andalucia.org/en/cultural-tourism/visits/granada/monuments/palacio-de-los-cordova/

“On our doorstep - lovely evening stroll with Alhambra views”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

Our apartments were at the start of the Carrera del Darro at Plaza Nueva so we regularly strolled down here of an evening - lovely little houses across the river with local putting washing out was great insight into their lives. Ability to dine whilst looking up to the Alhambra too - loved Rey Chico Restaurant.

“Great Evening Walk!”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

This walk has a great vibe in the evening, with lots of people out and about. At the end of the walk you come to a great little square the views of the Alhambra.

“Impressive walk”
Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

First of all get a taxi to the top which goes along this street and then walk back into town. Taxis are very cheap. The walk has the Alhambra above you on the left with a river below. On the right there is the old town. End up with a drink and tapas in one of the many squares.
