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.

  • This area is a mixture of old and new with these two blending extremely well. Wonderful area to walk around and take photos.  more »
  • It is just a large arch, nothing special. Good for a pic if you are passing by but don't go out of your way.  more »
  • We started our walk in Albayzin from here. The streets are very narrow, lots of stairs all going up...  more »

  • Do take the time to pause for a minute or two to look at this ancient gate built during the Moorish era. It's quite grand and has been well preserved. I'm glad it has survived through time. Love this design!
  • Beautiful place
  • Beautiful Granada filled with historical landmarks
  • One of the old gates of the wall of Granada which is still. It has a small square just to the side. If you cross it, you pass the historic centre of Granada.

  • A landmark spot that reminds us of the entrance to Granada in the Islamic domination. A piece of Granada full of history that is worth visiting, and cross.
