A great stroll and place to people watch

I sat on the wall for hours, basking in the sun and watching the people go by. You can get lots in the streets of the Albyzin, definitely not a bad thing. After a late night flamenco show, we found ourselves on this Carrera around 1am and still felt very safe. The Alhambra was beautifully lit up right beside it.

If you have trouble walking uphill, this could be challenging---this street runs along the river and can lead all the way up to Sacramonte or just up to ALbaicin, Mirador San Nicolas---basically from Plaza Nueva continue walking straight and you will be on this street

my experience was long simply because I stayed at a hostel nearby. I was blessed to experience a local musician play by a closed church, and realized that a taxi almost ran me over while walking nearby. Luckily, this is a normal thing on this path and the locals are aware of this occurrence.

In the old town you have a nice walk along a little stream Darro, a romantic walk, there are not so many restaurants and cafes, only splendour andalous.

This is one of the oldest roads in Granada and follows on the left bank the course of the River Darro as it winds through the narrow ravine between the Albayzin area and the Alhambra. There are two pedestrian only stone bridges across the river and many 16th and 17th century buildings that now house a number of shops, cafes... More

We walked here a few times when busy during the evenings and midday and early in the morning on our way to Sacramonte. The crowds hide the shops and architecture and I liked to look over the river to the buildings and the Alhambra . Plenty of restaurants , of all prices. Some for lunch offering 2 courses for 10...

If you come to Granada, you cant miss this place. Either you prepared yourself with a map and be lost or you can hire a tour guide, that can give you the insight of the place. Advisable to put on a good shoe as the area is based on medieval stone.
