Some decent tapas bars and middle eastern restaurants. The area can get busy but we usually managed to get a table where we wanted.

This quaint street starts from Plaza Nueva and ends in Puerta Elvira, a gate built in the 11th century as the main entrance to the city.

Along this street, you can find many craft shops, tapas bars, and a small Arabic quarter full of Middle Eastern and North African restaurants.

Our introduction to Granada- we had walked from the station and turned into this street from the main thoroughfare. It felt as if we had arrived, with the small shops and cafes and restaurants. It is a boundary of the Albaicin, so is a good market for where you are.

You will find yourself here several times in the course of a stay. It is chock full of shops, restaurants and hotels. Many Middle Eastern restaurants tend to congregate here. It can be a busy street. Watch out always for the vehicular traffic. The street has a positive vibe. At the far end it ends at the Puerta Elvira, an imposing structure.

Lots of colour and lots of choices to eat along this street and the side streets around it. It’s well known as a popular, lively (and admittedly touristy) spot at night with lots of tapas places clustered in the one area. Most offer a free tapas dish with your drinks. We ate twice at Bodega Nueva, a great local tapas bar with lots of character (I’ve written a separate review).
During the day, there are cafes, aromatic Arab tea houses and of course souvenir shops. You’ll see pretty much the same things as you’ll see at the Alcaiceria bazaar - cotton sultan’s pants, leather slippers, leather backpacks, souvenir trinkets but the prices seemed a bit cheaper here perhaps. We bought a pair of knitted woollen slipper/socks. They were definitely in the category of souvenir whim but we surprised ourselves back home, by finding them amazingly snug and comfy.
Calle Elvira runs off Plaza Nueva so it is very central location. It stretches from here back to the historic Puerta Elvira, an imposing but plain gateway into the city, dating from the 11th century.
It is also a very good launching pad into the Albaicin area. From Plaza Nueva, we walked along Calle Elvira, turning right to go uphill at Calle Caldereria Nueva and continuing up to the Mirador San Nicolas, into the heart of the Albaicin (15-20 min walk).

All that can be photographed here is the gate of the XI century Puerta de Elvira. However, the main interest for tourists are restaurants, many of which are stylized as the East and souvenir shops. Probably, the choice per square meter here is the best in Granada.

This busy street is bustling with traditional bazaar type shops selling all types of souvenirs. Some of it is touristy stuff but there is a lot of really nice gifts to buy. Plenty of restaurants and bars nearby and this all creates a great happy atmosphere

We had a lot of fun exploring the market, lots to see, many people of all backgrounds, lots of restaurants and plenty of little shops. There's a lot of tourist stuff, the quality varies considerably but you just have to explore and don't buy on the first day! We had a lot of fun, bought some great treats for family and ourselves.
And when you've had enough of shopping, find a cafe for a drink and tapas, a perfect way to people watch and take in the ambience.

This area is sort of Albaicin base camp ! Narrow street lined with mainly souvenir and gift shops the main products come from Morocco and celebrate Granadas past with 800 years of Muslim rule. Colourful wares - spices, clothing, lighting and much more. Great place to visit.
