With surprises around every winding turn, Granada’s narrow streets, lush gardens, and grand historic monuments reverberate with the city's Islamic past and medieval Renaissance. From flamenco in a cave to a sunrise hot-air balloon ride, here are a few ideas for a 2-day itinerary.
Paseo de los Tristes
Paseo de los Tristes, Granada, Andalucia, 18010
Guided walking, Segway, and electric-bike tours of Granada, which include a walk down Paseo de los Tristes, are available. Once you’ve had your fill of the wide, plazalike walkway and its views, you can easily move on to the Sacromonte and Albaicín neighborhoods, as well as the nearby Hammam Al Andalus Turkish baths. Paseo de los Tristes also leads to the cave-laced, hillside Sacromonte area, known for its flamenco tradition.
Things to Know Before You Go
The official name of Paseo de los Tristes is Paseo del Padre Manjón, so look for that name on your map or GPS.
A sunset stroll along the paseo is a popular romantic activity among couples.
Paseo de los Tristes can become congested with traffic from taxis and buses.
Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk on cobblestones.
How to Get There
Paseo de los Tristes is conveniently located among some of the city’s top sights and easily reached via Granada’s hop-on hop-off train. And though no public buses stop here, buses C31, C32, and C34 stop in Plaza Nueva, a short walk away.
When to Get There
Sunset is a popular time to take a walk down Paseo de los Tristes, so expect to encounter the most people then. If you want to avoid the crowds, head out in the early morning hours. Overall, the weekends and peak tourist season, which is typically in the spring and fall when the weather is ideal, are the busiest time.
Hammam Al Andalus
Offering a soothing respite from a day of walking, the nearby hammam features a traditional Turkish bath atmosphere with different temperature pools and a steam room. In addition to completing the circuit, you can also book a massage of up to 60 minutes. The Hammam Al Andalus is located next to Plaza Nueva, a quick walk from Paseo de los Tristes.
