  • the majority of shops is managed by Arab traders, and spices are good quality. From porta Elvira and follow all the way to get to the heart of albaycin

  • This street is amazing, full of Commerce, many Arab products, but very quiet, without being harassed by traders, what a glory!!

  • I've known her for a long time and not all the developments have been quite positive, especially during the past 15 years. In times nazries calle Elvira was one of the main streets of urban communication and one of the main entrances to the city. Very left for decades is in the midst of a revitalization process. Entering through Plaza Nueva, the first 100 m are bars, Moroccan shops and shawarma sites. The following 100 m nearly equal, disappearing more and more bars. I suggest to take it to the end, by their parties more quiet, where the last door orginial in what was the medieval wall: Puerta Elvira, an attraction as is, that you can see better from the Plaza del Triunfo. For me is the trayacto perhaps more interesting about the Elvia Street, without shawarmas, Moroccan shops and "hippies". I hope that so will continue for a long time more, since, in my view, parts of the historical center of Granada (in particular of the Albaycín) are increasingly being most affected by shops "metastasis" Moroccans and certain types of sites "fast food" etc.

Where to stay in Granada

Granada is built in a valley looking up to the majestic Alhambra, and most visitors choose to stay where the view can be admired. Plaza Nueva, just down the hill from the Alhambra entry gates, constitutes the touristic center of the city. Many of the famous free-tapas bars and lively restaurants line this famous plaza, as well as a number of small hotels and apartment rentals. Found directly behind the plaza are the city's two historical old Moorish quarters, Albayzín and El Sacramonte, which are characterized by their narrow winding streets and picturesque whitewashed buildings. Here you'll find a number of charming hotels with hillside views of the Alhambra and city center.
