Realejo: the place to go out in Granada

grenade-endroit-dormir-bar-sortir

Realejo is a friendly, festive and trendy neighbourhood. It has many
bars and restaurants with terraces, where locals come to dine in summer to
cool off from those hot summer days.

The Carmen de los Mártires gardens are the main attraction, typical of the Andalusian style.

The area is also home to the famous Alhambra and much of the Dehesa del Generalife park.

generalife-grenade-ou-dormir

At the time of the Nasrid dynasty (who ruled the city during its heyday), this was the Jewish quarter.

Today, Realejo is emblematic of the Andalusian villas with their gardens that open onto the street: the Cármenes.

It’s a pleasant neighbourhood, albeit a little out of the way, and one that we recommend you stay in if you like to party.

Things to see and do in the Realejo :

– Drink a cheap but delicious cocktail in Colagallo (for 4 euros
maximum!)

La Chana: the residential district

quartier-residentiel-grenade-sejourner

La Chana is a commercial and residential district located to the north-west of
Granada’s city centre, and is frequented by tourists looking for a more bohemian
experience.

In recent years, this area has become the culinary centre of Granada (more so than El Centro, in fact), and restaurateurs are known to compete fiercely for customers by offering tapas, live music and discounted drinks!

To cater for students (yes, the University of Granada is located here), portions are both larger and cheaper than in other parts of the city.

So, if you want to soak up the local atmosphere and sample some of the region’s most authentic specialities, this is the place to stay.

tourists can easily find transport to
the Alhambra and other attractions.

tapas bars
