    This is a compilation from several of mine and my friend's trip.

    Granada- (ignore the numbering system)

    1. Paseo de los Tristes, along the Río Darro. Very nice places to eat.
    2. Plaza Bib-rambla: wonderful plaza where we stayed, at Hotel Los Tilos.
    3. Los Italianos on Gran Via: Ice cream! Maybe closes mid-October
    4. Plaza De La Pescadería: nice street. Eat a salad of cod and oranges, called remojon.
    5. Mirador de San Nicolás and bar below for sunset. (It was not hard to get a seat (actually a couch) in the bar.
    6. Bookstore: Libreria Metro, near Plaza de la Trinidad
    1. Hospital Real: palace now housing med school. Beautiful.
    2. Taberna Tofe on Campo del Principle. Mary and Kate’s favorite and we went here often. Also appeared to be very popular with locals.
    3. Hicuri - on Calle Santa Escolastica (Address is Plaza Girones -great breakfast place on main road between La Ninfa and downtown Granada.
    1. There is an amazing cultural museum of Andalucia in the southeast part of the city. It is near some of the modern museums including the science museum, so outside of the tourist area. I would have loved to have more time there. “Museo de la Memoria de Andalucía
    2. Our hotel owner recommended Zambra María La Canastera if you want to see a show in the caves of Sacromonte. It was great flamenco.

    Hostel La Ninfa- loved this very non-touristy neighborhood.

    Buy tickets for Alhambra online before you go. Try to have at least 4 hours, preferable more, in order to see all the gardens and the fortress.

    If you love local color, then wander the alleyways of the Albayzin neighborhood. It's the old Moorish neighborhood and another world. It feels, smells, looks, and sounds like Morocco.

    Of course, there are places to see like the Catedral de Granada which often has a really great spice market just behind it. It's set in the Plaza Bib-rambla, where I found the most tapas bars and shopping areas.

    For other sides of Granada, go to the Sacromonte which has whitewashed caves or check out the old Jewish quarter with of Realejo-San Matías.

    Every neighborhood is different, and perfect for soaking up that local color. :) Have fun!
